About the Poem

Writing this poem helped me let out my feelings about my mom's getting cancer and the pain I felt at knowing I could get it one day.

What A Dream

What a dream
To see a world that
I want to see
Happy as can be
A smiling face that
Will always be
Knowing when I wake
I face my fate
I got your name
Will I get your disease
Not knowing what
The future holds
Can I take what it gives
Or will I lose the fight

What a dream
Kids all around
Smile on a face
That never goes away
Just an inch of hope
That's all I have
You gave me life
Made it so I had no fear
Fear will always be with me
From this day on

I take life one day at a time
Knowing that
It will all come down on me
I have to face it now
Knowing that I can't face it
When it comes
