Cancer Is So Limited

Aug 2014    

          They’ve sentenced you with invisible cells that
secret themselves deep in body recesses and multiply:
lymphatic assault on vital functions.
          Can cancer conquer you?
I doubt it, for the strengths I see in you have
nothing to do with cells and blood and muscle.
          For cancer is so limited—
It cannot cripple love.
It cannot shatter hope.
It cannot corrode faith.
It cannot eat away peace.
It cannot destroy confidence.
It cannot kill friendship.
It cannot shut out memories.
It cannot silence courage.
It cannot invade the soul.
It cannot reduce eternal life.
It cannot quench the spirit.
It cannot cancel Resurrection.
          Can cancer conquer you?
I doubt it, for the strengths I see in you have
nothing to do with cells and blood and muscle.
