Unwelcome Intruder 30/12/2009

To all those that lost the battle, those that are still fighting, those that will have to fight and those that fought and fight alongside them

There is this
Unwelcome itntruder
Hidding in our mist,
Sometimes
We can see it,
Others,
It is missed.

It hides
Inside
All of us.
Some are lucky
And they never
Have to suffer
Its assualt.
Others
Are not so.

It is a part
Of every cell,
Even on the make up
Of our DNA,
It waits,
It haunts,
It stalks…
And then
One day
It gets
Its claws
In our flesh…
And grows…

If we are
Fortunate enough
We have time
To fight its advance…
If we see it…
If we realize
That something
Is not right…
But so many
Have already
Succumbed
To the ravage
Of its relentles
Attacks
Throughout
All the ages
Of humankind…

It does not
Discriminate,
It does not care
Who it gets,
Rich or poor…
Big or small…
Young or old…
It is
An equal opportunity
Enemy
In its deeds…
It even
Transcends species
With great ease….

It is
A formidable
Enemy,
I agre,
But while
There is life
We must fight!!
For there is hope
That never dies
If we are
Alive!!

If we don’t have
Hope in our lives
Then we might
As well
Give Up.
For we have
Already died!!
