Life Goes On

“Life goes on” nowhere more do these three words
Drive you insane
Cause a pain deep within your heart
Cause so many tears
How can life go on when you’re dealing with cancer?

At first I thought these three words only had the ability to hurt me while I was dealing with
Chemotherapy
Radiation
Herceptin
As I wrestled with my own hell called treatments, how could life go on around me?

How can people complain to me about their
Aches and pains
Arguments with their coworkers and friends
About their colds and coughs
When I can’t even think about tomorrow?

I made peace with cancer by focusing on
My kids
My faith
My sense of humor
Helping others

Just as you think you’ve attained peace,
Your best buddy gets the news,
Your cancer has metastasized,
It doesn’t look good,
And life goes on…

Rose
