Cancer sucks

Helpless

Facing death
like boxers in a ring,
you’re bloody and bruised
from the last four rounds
but you’re up again,
ready for more.
He is always there,
one step ahead of you,
ready to knock you out
for the final punch.

It’s worse
when you’re not in the ring
instead,
you’re watching the endless rounds
from the stands
seeing someone you care about
become more and more battered
as his opponent
continues his streak
of being undefeated.
