An Unexpected Journey

Cancer is an Unexpected Journey.

A road trip that no one ever expects to have to take.

Because there is colour there is still hope,

Hope of life, 

Hope of more than what is here and now,

Hope of something better.

Maybe there’s not? 

Maybe this is it;

 and my whole life was a waste of time!

I hope not, therefore there is colour.

Colour for the hope 

to carry me over to something better.

Colour for hope

to bear the pain ahead.

I’m angry 

but I am not lost,

I’m afraid

But I am not frightened.
