Moonlit Musing – Cancer


fate is final
faith is fatal

the body devours self,
an internal war
a blind eye turns;
better to pray
to a voice in your head
to no one but you
than to trust
a doctor. two.
How many second opinions
equal the silence of
a god?

the mind makes
the spirit
to living,
believing it’s sinning
to save yourself.
You. Will. Die.
for your god
for your pride.

Death comes to those in denial.
A willing child
forever waiting for an
absent father.
who doesn’t care
at Best.
who doesn’t exist
at Worst.
maybe those are
becomes a mortal curse.

Death comes for all
but for the faithful
It comes at a run.
Demise in double-time.
what a surprise
that the being that never
said a word
also never
made a move
such a dignified suicide
such a proud devout
man to march to the tomb
taking another path
would lead to more road
it’s only
god is involved
that fate is final
faith is fatal.
