Cold Cancer Wind

the cold wind races

across the empty landscape

howling as it blows

I stand in a field

unable to find shelter

it pushes me back

cancer is that wind

causing damage everywhere

stinging my stunned face

I feel like the land

unprotected and ravaged

my body takes it

it runs rampantly

like an out of control storm

both inside and out

I may be alone

but I will stand against you

as long as I can

I’m not as easy

to knock down as you first thought

whipping cancer wind

I will push back hard

standing like a boulder with

granite in my veins
