I walked the walk so you can talk the talk

I am strong for I have walked an empty road of hopelessness. Cancer is the mitosis of good and evil, strength and weakness. I walked the walk and felt the pain. It oppressed me like a large volcano erupting into the atmosphere, spewing debris in my body. One day, a mutation of love morphed into the planet and freed me forever of the agony. I walked the walk, it is for that, I can talk the talk. Thanks be to our God for the recipe it made me strong and free because you made the strides. Written by: Jeralyn D. Tolliver as a tribute to Shaun Alan King, Chemist and Roderick Alan King, Physicist. Also anyone suffering from this terrible disease and any queen bees working on cures. Also, I have to add, that this poem was inspired by my friend Mary, cancer survivor.
