My Cancer Is Gone

My cancer is gone

or so they say

The scars display

they have cut it away

Go live your life.

So easy to say,

Do the doctors know

It never goes away?

I’m ready to live

To love, move on

Close the problem already

No need to prolong

I’m cured

It’s gone

I’ve survived

I’ve won

Stop the worry

they say,

Just be strong.

I want to live free

no strain, move on.

But the next appointment comes

And again it’s not long,

For the questions are asked

When and how long,

What type and where and now what is wrong?

The disease is now gone

But the title displays

I own cancer forever

It never really goes away!
