"I came, I saw, I conqued."


I am sick
I am poor
No money means
No medicene
And death is at my door
He waits and waits
For me to give up
But i won't give up
I don't give up
I get older but not better
And death peers in the window
Waiting for me to die
I won't die
I don't die
When i get weaker
He gets stronger
Then he barges in and claims me
I close my eyes
I am not sick
I am better
I am better

The author's comments:
What inspired me to write this was I thought about all the sick people in the world and how most just keep fighting every day till they die.

I love the message behind this because when we go to be Christ and live in heaven, it is so true :).
