Daily missive for Wednesday the 4th of February.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Wednesday the 4th of February.

One in two will have a visit from cancer at some point in their lives.

Love passages
Make the journey
Easier.
They have energy
Of purpose,
To overcome
Setbacks,
Tear down walls,
Redefine boundaries.
Lives depend on them,
And history is made
As young things
Die for them.
But they are
No miracle worker.
A panacea
They may be.
A distraction
From reality.
A maker of dreams
Holder of hearts.
But beneath
The warmth of love’s
Inviting cloak
Destruction
Darkly lies.
Nothing remains
Standing.

And with the
Certainty of
Each second
Passing,
Gently though
The hands tick by,
All living cells will die.
Disease will visit
The lives of even
Those
Who know such
Purity of thought,
As to wish
No harm
On any one.
And death
Will claim them.
It knows no boundary,
Passport control,
Nor early release,
Pardon or parole.
It strikes
In silence.
The perfect assassin
And never fails
To do its duty.
And cull,
The worst
Of life,
Along with
All the beauty.
