Cancer

cancerbegone

When it rains, look for rainbows

When it's dark, look for stars.”


No one wants to have you

worries you put one through

you make one feel so screwed

it's scary to have you


Like a thief in the night

no one has the foresight

fear your name can incite

you give one so much fright


Nobody is immune

you leave one so consumed

you can come late or soon

no time is opportune


Body and mind can't rest

faith is put to the test

to fight you is a quest

that all will do their best


To beat you at all cost

all stakes need to exhaust

one keeps his fingers crossed

so life will not be lost


The one who can't be named

you cause not only pain

but put one strained and drained

like one has just been maimed


Scientists are eager

find a cure that'll answer

the world will be better

if you are gone-CANCER


When you have exhausted all possibilities, remember this: You haven't.”

Cancer is a very wicked disease.

I love your quote in the beginning.

When it rains, look for rainbows

When it's dark, look for stars

Also this part here is so true...

Like a thief in the night

no one has the foresight
