Life In Short (Poem For A Cancer Patient)

As the title wave of life passes us by, we must think on what is really important to us. It’s not about what the big things are, but what means the most. Can we push on when we’re unsure of how to go, or is it too much to push through? That’s for us to decide. Nobody can tell us how to live, but in our short time our lives are shown to those around us. Be it online or in person, those who know us best see us for what we truly are. We’ve had so much to live for, so much strife to push aside, yet as the time counts down to the end, what have we done? Who have we helped? Where have we drawn the line? Today isn’t meant to be shown. It’s meant to be lived, and as we move on, we learn how to live. It’s not about what we do. It’s about what we take from life. It’s not about being alive. It’s about living. As we fade away, no matter how young or old we are, there’s somebody out there who was affected by what we did, what we said, how we lived, and what we thought was important. Death isn’t a fact of life. It’s the goal. Life isn’t about the destination. It’s about the journey. Lets take one together. As friends, as family, as the human race. Lets just go and see how far we can go until we’re forced to no longer go again. Lets see who we can affect and how much we can bring to the race as a whole.


This poem was written by a good friend of mine. She’s currently dealing with cancer, but her birthday is coming soon. I thought it’d be appropriate to show her that her journey won’t be wasted even if it ends. Her treatment is going well, but if you can, I urge you to do something for Christina based around the journey of life and send it to her or to me to send to her if you don’t want to make a deviantart account.
