It seemed like light

I used to pray for cancer

For the distraction from the worldly worries

And a catapult to the spiritual ones.

 

I used to pray for cancer

It's a dark prayer I know

But the darkness seemed like light.

 

I used to pray for cancer

You can't get hurt by another when you're already hurt

Flowers and prayers and support mask the pain

 

I used to pray for cancer

But now I know the truth

Prayers rarely get answered, the hurting stay hurt

 

I used to pray for cancer

Now no longer so I float along the stream

With no purpose, no pain, no problem

 

This poem is about: 
Me
