The moment you hear your diagnosis for the first time,
your breath that you lost, is something you try to find.
You finally figured out why you’ve been suffering for so long,
you try not to react, you just strive to stay strong.
Tears unwillingly welt up in your eyes,
all you want is a long life, that’s the end prize.
You look weary into your loved ones eyes,
you just pray they won’t abandon you, through the lows and the highs.
You wonder what you ever did to deserve this,
life before your illness is something you will forever miss.
Now you will never take life for granted,
each moment with your loved ones will be in your brain, forever planted.
You work hard to have a new normal life, every second of everyday,
even though life is not handed to you, you know you will be okay.
