Breast Cancer

Betrayed by life
Rare treasure of memories
Etched this soul
Amidst the pain
Smile becoming hard to hold
Together we shall fight this battle

Cannot bend down to this
Arise from the sleep of ignorance
Need to hold hands and be strong
Concentrated efforts will lead us to victory
Erasing the cancer
Reminding us that together we can…

Written for Acrostic only


  1. How wonderful, and so very true. Your words touched my heart. Thank you.

  2. Bellisimo! Enjoyed your acrostic

  3. A most touching poem with words so true.
    Thanks for sharing.


  4. I am touched! I wonder how these people try to live when they know they are closer to death. We, so-called healthy people, fear death so much that we forget to live. Have you heard to story of Randy Pausch? If you have not, I strongly recommend you read his page on Wiki, watch his videos on YouTube or better yet, get a copy of The Last Lecture.

    I hail the spirit of those who fight this disease and inspire all those who ever get to feel their grace.
