Chemo Warrior

Started by Anonymous on 21 February 2014 at 13:20

I was a chemo warrior,

bearing arms with pride.

I didn't care

that I lost my hair

I took it in my stride.


I was a chemo warrior

I lost my breast, that's true.

With lymph nodes gone

I soldiered on

and took what was my due.


I was a chemo warrior

and I'd do it all again.

I can't deny

it made me cry

but it also kept me sane.
