"Love me, not for her, not for him, not for she, not for he, not even for me, but for you."

"Outer beauty is the eyes reaction to inner beauty"


A reaper comes for all.

A family breaker.
A life taker.
No one understands it until graced by its presence.
Is it in the air or perhaps the grass?
The phantom comes for all.
The factor of it is never established.
Then one fail swoop, seized from your life.
Stabbed in the heart.
Yet you yourself non-intoxicated by the poison.
The venom comes for all.
Elder, Juvenile, Infant.
The executioner is not concerned upon your year on this earth.
Or weather you be beautifully tender or a cruel assassin.
The slithering serpent pays no mind to character.
Many say hell is merciless, I declare life is worse.
The reaper comes for all.

The author's comments:
I've now experianced cancer for the second time. Not myself, but rather with loved ones around me. My dearest father who is still battling cancer, and one of the most inspirering and motavational teachers I have ever met , has passed from many types of cancer.
This poem is made to help others understand the pain that someone goes through when a amazing person is taken away from them because of cancer.
