the word trembles in my mouth
a friend close has been cursed with it
why is fate so harsh?
you wouldn't wish it on your enemy

Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels.
The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes -
the ones who see things differently.
They're not fond of rules and they have no respect for the status quo.
They push the human race forward.

As far as the poem goes, expand. I'm sure you feel many emotions so show them in your writing!!

I'm extremely sorry for your friend. One of my close friends died two and a half years ago at the age of 11 -- I know how you feel. But scientists and doctors are finding new cures every day; lots of cancer patients survive. I hope he is among the survivors.
