My Favorite Color Pink

Pink was my favorite color
Pink was the color every girl dreamed of
Until, it became part of me
I was 9 when I was playing with my friends
Suddenly,I collapsed on the ground
my mamma ran to
the hospital with me
The Doctor said Pink had become my best friend
I loved pink, but I didn't want Pink to affect the relationship we shared
I knew Pink for years
It was there for me everyday
Sometimes, even hurt me
I would cry,
and there was nothing I could do
Because it had taken over my body
I watched the other little girls lay in their beds
when I'd ask what
their favorite
color was they'd say Pink, I never understood why
mother hated Pink so much
in my mind, my soul
I knew Pink wouldn't go down without a fight
I now had to be
the warrior that
saves my own life
Every surgeries
cost a tear from
my mother's eye
Every medication
cost my dad dollars
Every cough, cost my family hope
I loved you pink
But, my life was also important to me, so I fought
Then, one day I stood in front of the mirror
I saw a new me
Pink had let me go
I became cancer free, And you won't be missed
But I will always remember you
In my heart, In my soul
Cause you
once was part of me.
