I have cancer

I have cancer, 

cancer doesn't have me

have one conversation and you'll see

that I am not my pain, my way

instead I am a fighter, and so much more

 

So this is my story

a long one at that

but from it I have grown

and never looked back

 

I will not be defined by an illness, a disease

I will only be defined by the possibilities 

of things I can be and will achieve 

never being stopped by this disease

 

I have cancer, 

cancer doesn't have me

have one conversation and you'll see

that I am not my pain, my war

instead I am a fighter, and so much more
