“I am uninvited. I think you should know my arrival.”
“Ignoring me may lead to your downfall”
“May be you don’t think, I can visit you. You’re SO wrong!”
“Now, get ready to suffer for neglecting me and see my fury”
*goes to doctor and does check-up*
“You may be listening to my voice for the first time because this is the first time you are paying attention and listening attentively but I was screaming and trying to let you know to get rid of me when I was innocent and a kid. Now, I have matured and I don’t intend to leave you, no matter what you do.”
*gets all nervous when the tests of check up comes as – Cancer positive*
“You will live. But for as long as I want. I am not ready to leave you because you have been a good host to me. Good because you neglected your symptoms and skipped your check ups and I was left to grow and grow I did”
*prayers and chemotherapy*
“You think you can make me weak? Good choice but you are also draining your bank account in the hope of living for some extra days but all in vain. I have knitted such a vicious web of my power that nothing can heal you. Now feel guilty for letting me grow and not killing me when in bud.”
*dies and family weeps and curse cancer*
“Curse me but I will find another reckless host and grow again. For now, feel glad that I have left. See you careless creatures soon enough”
I have written this as a tribute to how Cancer is increasing in our lives, not just the disease but also the ill feeling for someone or something. Any bad/unwanted thing which grows within us is cancer and we have to make sure that we kill it in the bud stage and not feed it, till it kills us. Ego, anger to name some. There is love.There are smiles. Spread them and feed them and life will we sweet.
