- What Matters
It is dusk
Everything is fine
You have everything you ever wanted,
A wonderful relationship
Your life is everything you wanted it to be.
Then the darkness of night comes.
You dread the words the docter has told you
All the sudden your perfect life takes a turn and becomes imperfect
Suddenly your life and family means more to you then it ever has.
You are confused,
You are stressed,
You are worried,
You have cancer.
Then the clock strikes midnight
You might as well give up now
There is nothing you can do to stop the pain
Your family puts on a fake smile to hide their own pain, yet you can still see it hiding deep in there eyes.
Your falling without anything to grasp onto,
Your falling without knowing when or if you will land
But the miracle of dawn comes
Your suddenly winning the deadly fight
Everything is improving
You feel better
You look better
The hurt that you saw before in your families eyes is now replaced with hope
You can almost taste the victory
Finally the long waited light of morning that you desired so much shines in
You reached the end of your dark winding path
You are no longer falling
You are no longer desperately finding something to hold onto
Today you get to come home from the hospital,
But not only as a cancer surviver,
You come home with a new perspective of life.
It is now afternoon.
Everything is normal as it was,
You return to your
Your likable parents,
Your great friends.
But now knowing life is a privilage,
Not an expectation.
Your life is perfect again,
All is well.
