Medium Poems

1. “Scars”
Scars on my chest,
A reminder of what once was,
A battle fought and won,
But the memories still do haunt.
The battle may be over,
But the scars are here to stay,
A reminder of the strength,
That got me through each day.

2. “Pink Ribbon”
A symbol of hope,
A beacon in the dark,
A reminder to fight,
And never lose heart.
Pink ribbon on my lapel,
A reminder of those gone,
And those who still fight,
For a cure to be found.
May this ribbon unite us,
And give us strength to carry on,
Until the day we can say,
Breast cancer is gone.

3. “Warrior”
I may have lost a breast,
But I have not lost my soul,
For I am a warrior,
Strong, determined and bold.
I fought and I won,
Against a foe so fierce,
And though my body bears scars,
My spirit remains intact.
I wear my survivor badge,
With pride and with grace,
For I am a warrior,
And I will never lose faith.

Long Poems

Unbreakable Hope: A Journey through Breast Cancer

Oh, how the world stands still
When the words are uttered, “you have breast cancer”
A heartbreaking moment, a destiny unfulfilled
But hope arises, a fire lit with an inner dancer

It’s a journey of many trials and many tears
Days when the body betrays, and fear rules
Intense treatments, with side effects that bring fears
But with each day, there’s a victory that the soul rules

The scars, both physical and emotional
Remind you of the strength that lies within
The battle cry rings true, unbreakable, and exponential
For the warrior spirit rises, with hope and love to win

The loving arms of family and friends
Create a circle of support that never ends
The community of survivors, a bond that transcends
With each milestone reached, in unison, hearts, and hands extend

Through it all, there’s a newfound appreciation
For the beauty of every moment, the wonder of life
And as the journey comes to a culmination
The unbreakable hope prevails, a beacon, a light

For the courage that sustains through the fear
For the strength that overcomes weakness
For the love that heals wounds, both far and near
The journey of breast cancer is a testament, a teach us

We are all warriors, in our unique ways
With dreams to realize, and love to give
And in that journey, when hope is ablaze
We find the strength to unbreakably live.
