Cancer

I’m inside of your body; I’m inside of your veins.
And when I come to you I bring a whole new kind of pain.
I’ll make you ache without a doubt,
And once I’m in you’ll never get me out.
To you and your family I bring many tears.
I’m the greatest one of all your fears.
I’ll tear apart your family, then take away your life,
All good things end, as soon as I arrive.
I’ll take away everything, including your hair.
I’ll take away everything, and I don’t even care.
If you haven’t guessed my name yet, the here is the answer,
I go by one name only. Hello, my name is Cancer.
You can get me from those dirty sticks or even from the sun.
The more stupid things you do, the more that I have fun.
It’s impossible to explain how I make you feel.
But when you wake up every morning, I’ll remind you that its real.
I’ve invited death to your door, and you better let him in,
Go ahead and try to put up a fight, but you know I always win.

Woww. That's a really sad poem, but it was really good.
