Cancer

It was beginning to look like Spring
Lush green and colors of the flowers
The pollen dust covered bees
Buzzing and swaying to the winds
Pollution had just moved away
While skies became clear blue
Water mirrored beautiful serenity
Homes were filled with love
Forgotten friendships revived
And, we were becoming whole again

Kindness had begun to bloom
Chaos became hope and calm
Yet, the poor were famished more
The privileged turned melancholic
Despite the surge of magnamity
But Cancer was killing one and all
As an uninvited guest into lives
Whether be our bodies or souls
It didn’t spare the famous or obscure
Quietly, it took down one after another

Blatant was the irony of life
On one hand we learned lessons
Of peace, harmony and recovery
While the other was of mourning
There was no cure to this malady
Some lucky for borrowed days
Rest resigned to their fate
Memories began to end abruptly
Uncertainty was the only certainty
Promises, are all we have to live for
