Will I Lose My Dignity?

When my hair is gone,

and my rib cage shows,

will I still be human?

 

When my schedule is full,

with doctors and hospitals,

will you still bother?

 

When I can’t move,

because everything hurts,

will you still be here?

 

When I can’t control my body,

and tears roll down my face,

will you look away?

 

When the treatments stop working,

and I say okay,

will you respect that?

 

When an illness makes my body

reject who I am,

will I lose my dignity?

 

AN: This is a tribute, and a memorial, to all those who have suffered with and survived Cancer, and to those who could not. You will not lose your dignity. You are human. Nothing can take that away.
