The Fear of Cancer Therapy

The fear of cancer therapy looms

A shadow cast over hope and healing rooms

The drugs and treatments, harsh and strong

Can leave the body weak and wrong

Radiation burns and chemo’s toll

Side effects that take a heavy toll

Hair loss, nausea, fatigue and pain

A battle fought again and again

The fear of what the future holds

Of what the treatment will unfold

Uncertainty and anxiety reign

As the body fights to ease the pain

But in the midst of fear and doubt

A flicker of hope can still come about

For the battle against cancer’s might

Is one fought with courage, love and light

So take heart, dear ones, and don’t lose sight

Of the strength and resilience that shines so bright

For in the face of fear and uncertainty

Love and hope will always be the key.
