I wrote this about cancer because I absolutely hate this sickness. My best friends mom died from it, she was practically a mom to me, and I thought that I could honor her and write a poem about just how horrible cancer is.

Cancer Kills Quickly, A Warning to the Sickly

I've been killing myself slowly
Beginning to rot away
Still they look at me coldly
My skin now dead and gray.

I've picked out a coffin
Even picked out my plot
I think of my death often
Think of the time I've still got.

As I begin to slip away
My eyes closed and teeth clenched
I'm wishing for another day
Wishing for my thirst to be quenched.

Look at me now, six feet underground
I'm feeling the cold and decay
While I lie here, the world still spins round
I didn't want to die this way!

I hated this sickness
Now it's done me in
I hated it's quickness
I could never win.

As I laid there in my hospital bed
Waiting for my time to come
They unhooked my machines, knowing I'd soon be dead
They said it was ok, but I'm not that dumb.

The obviously lied
They couldn't face the truth
The truth is that I died
Cancer destroyed my youth.
