Silent Scourge (Poem on Cancer)

My heart aches with proverbial twinge, 
Indescribable pain engulfed thy spirit 
Debilitating soreness transformed me into wilted point 
Dismal abyss overwhelmed unspoken woe. 

Moan of anguish welled out from my soul 
Adversity crippled the future 
Fallen hopes and must-haves faded with the coil 
Entangled thoughts flooded my essence. 

Hope is such a distant refuge 
Safe haven uttered of deep prayer 
Evil cancer- an unspoken foe 
Silently metastasis and tissues torn in ragged pieces. 

Life is in pain 
Healing is such a distant word 
Agony nagged thy fragility 
Chemo wrenched whatever optimism is left. 

Nay, body won’t succumb to trepidation 
Lest I’ll be beaten by the silent cursed 
Illness that plagued won’t consume me 
In misery thy frail body won’t acquiesce.

This is a fraction of who am I. The ‘I’ is often ignored because ever since I could remember ‘we’ and ‘they’ hold more responsibilities since they denote more number of people involved.
