Finding Me
Author: Faith


In the search for myself
What do I find
I find a girl who has lost
All track of time

Someone who has forgotten
What it is like to live
Someone who begs for forgiveness
For all the wrong things she did

A girl who is slowly dying inside
Who was too scared to put up a fight
And let this disease slowly
Take away her life

She used to run and hide
And would cut herself
In hopes of masking all of the pain
She felt deep down inside

Then she came to realize
She wasn't so bad
But how she took life for granted
Is something so very sad

Now her faith helps
Take away all of her pain
And she no longer lives
Her life in vain.

------- Author's Notes -------

This is a poem I wrote about my early struggles of how to learn to live with cancer and still look forward to a better future.
