BREAST CANCER

Beast of the body
Reminds me
Each time of
A cousin who
Suffered
That painful fate

Creating an
Alarm in myself and
Never even
Cease to leave me the fear
Each time I am
Reminded of the beast!

  3. That's remind me also on how my older sister died due to that beast,....my lovable sister suffer of pain and she close her eyes with tears and I know she is sad because she's leaving without assurance on how her four little kids grows without her tender cares.

  8. A beast and killer. I loved how you used this prompt to create a lovely acrostic.

  9. Very nicely written. Having a mom that passed from breast cancer, this poem was very easy to relate to.
