Cancer Doesn’t Care

August 20, 2015

This poem has been in my mind for quite some time. I finally decided to write and publish it when UK journalist Victoria Derbyshire revealed her breast cancer diagnosis yesterday.

I dedicate it to anyone who is currently battling cancer and the families of anyone who has battled or is battling cancer.

Cancer Doesn’t Care

Cancer doesn’t care if you’re rich and famous
Cancer doesn’t care if you’re world number one
Cancer doesn’t care if you’re someone’s daughter
Cancer doesn’t care if you’re someone’s son.

Cancer doesn’t care if you make music
Cancer doesn’t care if you sing the blues
Cancer doesn’t care if you play a sport
Cancer doesn’t care if you read the news.

Cancer doesn’t care if you’re someone’s mother
Cancer doesn’t care if you’re someone’s wife
Cancer doesn’t care if you’re someone’s sister or brother
Cancer doesn’t care if you’re the love of someone’s life.

Cancer doesn’t care if you’re happy or sad
Cancer doesn’t care if you’re someone’s dad
Cancer doesn’t care that to see it you’re not glad
Cancer just doesn’t care and that’s what makes it so very bad!

I give permission for this to be reprinted anywhere- but I ask that, with the exception of WordPress reblogs which automatically do both, you credit me as the author and email me on samedifferenceone@hotmail.co.uk to let me know you wish to reprint it.

    It’s good I like it, being a fan of poetry.
