Cancerous Habits


Growing spreading

Living off of the hope that it steals

Nearly definite

Nearly impossible to heal

Burning, raving

Silent death

Take me now

Steal my final breaths

Tobacco allow

I ponder a thought

If cancer takes my life

And I have not fought

Is it considered a nondirective suicide?

Less hositile than a knife

Still, its cuts through me all the same

Would you have cried


To hear of my passing?

As silent as the rain

Would it make you mad

To hear of my laughing?

For I fear no death
It comes for us all

If mine is sooner

Then allow me to fill

my counted days

With meth and pills

There’s no reason for caution

In my narrow life

When I am heading for my coffin
