A message of faith, hope and love during the fight for survival of cancer. I am a breast cancer survivor, as is my mother and many of my friends..., this is dedicated to all who are, have or will be affected by cancer.

What is this ab-nor-mality
It's growing fast inside of me
How did this happen, what have I done
It's not my fault, the odds have won
Mutation of a single cell
You start with this, then go through Hell
At first it's just a couple cuts
But then it spreads, chemo's just nuts
This poison kills all in its path
Too weak, too sick, the aftermath
I think I can beat it, I'll just have to try
My family and friends, they won't say good-bye
I know there's a reason, I'm not sure just why
The Lord puts us through this, I look to the sky
For strength and for courage, the faith to get through it
Support for my loved ones, I know you can do it
Within all the scars, the bruises and pain
Each minute of life, is our biggest gain
I tell you, I love you..., don't want you to cry
I'll try everything and try not to die
But in the event, it is written that way
Be sad not for me, just remember this day
When we woke up this morning, the sun and its glory
Said hello to us all, now get on with your story
For each of the days, we are given a chance
To love one another, make life our own dance
So fear not for me, I'm grateful to say
I've been given a chance and yet, one more day

After reading a few of your poems, I will save this one to my library because I don't want to forget your name. In the future, when someone I know needs inspiration for a battle with cancer, I'll know how to find your page.
God bless you and keep you strong in Him.

Dear Suzi,

May your ups outweigh your downs.
May your smiles outweigh your frowns.
May you always feel as young as you are today.
May your faith and joy in life prosper in every way.
May the words that you write and the things you say in 2011,
grant you much love and peace from Our Father who art in Heaven.
Reference: Luke 11:24
Love & Blessings

Your poem makes me think of the purity of the planet and all over life before we polluted it with our material creations that now return the favor by filling us with disease. Thank you for delivering that powerful insight through your verse.

With best wishes for the coming new year,
