Controversial Cancer Poem



If cancer could speak, what would it say? This video answers that and it might just piss you off. There are so many emotions that swirl through your head when you are diagnosed with cancer. Holding my mother’s hand as she died from ovarian cancer and then to be diagnosed a year later has made me question what am I not learning here. This poem was what came out.

CANCER:
I have wars waged upon me and walks staged against me.
You try to blame me and shame me for doing my job.
But maybe you should look at why I arrived.
You accuse genetics or food for giving you this curse,
But it is not what you put in your mouth
but what didn’t come out that was worse.
You invited me in, asked me to stay,
By burying your feelings and the things you wanted to say.
The hate that you ate was your true poison.
And your only way out it to learn to be open.
I have no malice or motive, a villain I am not.
If you look deep within, you will realize this is a gift I have brought. Life is to short and you are doing it all wrong.
The fastest way to fix it is for me to come along.
I am a teacher and I give you a present more precious than life,
The reminder that you have caused your very own strife.
I do not break families apart but I bring them together.
I show you that the weak are strong
And to be vulnerable is better.
All things that glitter are not gold
Your youth, hair, and breast will all get old.
You have put value in an asset with diminishing returns.
And I will make all of those things burn.
Out of the ashes true beauty will grow.
And LOVE is the only word you will need to know.

    Aniela, you are an awesome person. Thank you for sharing your light-hearted "How to" videos, and your very courageous cancer videos as well. I wish you the best.

    Beautiful and true, my cancer has been the awful teacher and life lessons I always wanted to learn but never in that way. It's been a trial by fire and I vacillate between gratitude for the experience and deep anger at the costs.

    This is wonderful. I actually go in for my bilateral mascetomy on December the 18th. I'm 31 with a 7 year old son and a wonderful husband. Long story short I was adopted and so many of your points hit close to home. Being a woman that had to grow up being independent and taking care of herself it is very hard to ask for help. It's beautiful and true. I hope you are doing well! Much love~Tiffany

    sorry but i have to disagree…. my moon had two breast cancers and now she is going through a glioblastoma (brain tumor), and none of them was metastasis… and it didn't show us (as a family) nothing but pain and fear. the brain tumor changed my mom so much that she doesn't act like my mom anymore. it didn't show me the value of love because i already have it. i was very close to my mom, i tell her almost everything. and now i can't because she don't understand. i became almost like her mother. i'm only 22 and i didn't want that responsibility right now. i love my mom, i always will, but cancer didn't show me that. cancerr made me be scared all the time. for her, for me and for my kids that are still unborn.
    Anyways, good luck to you and your projects! 🙂 hope you win the batle!ncongradulations on you're idea.

    This is beautiful! Out of curiosity, is this a published poem (where it has an ISBN number)? I'm a Speech and Debate competitor, and I would love to perform this poem because it has such a unique style and take on cancer. Either way, thank you for such a beautiful piece of art, it is truly inspiring.

    As I was looking for information on starting a worn farm for my garden, I came across your worm farm video. Truth be told I only clicked on it because I saw boobs. I thought your video was funny and noticed you are stunningly gorgeous as well.  So I looked at your channel. As I look at your video lists I see  Biopsy results, Removing boobs tomorrow, Post Mastectomy, and Women shaves her hair off on Youtube. My jaw dropped and my heart sank. I started watching your videos and realized your boobs and flowing red hair are not what make you beautiful, they were just a plus, it's your personality. Your whole attitude is inspiring and down right awesome! And since, I have shaved my own head in your support( well, not all. I left a mohawk). You're a cool chick and I subscribed to your channel to follow your progress. Good Luck!

    Simply….WOW. As a writer, this was phenomenal. You are indeed strong and through your emotions and words here, your honesty is just as fearless as your diagnosis.  You definitely have learned and it shines so brightly.  Peace to you

    MyBreastCancer, I want to share a book with you. It can truly help you if you decide to take a look. 

    Here is the description:

    "The amazing stories in this book are first-hand accounts of people from all walks of life who recovered from serious, or in many cases, terminal diseases through practicing Falun Dafa. Falun Dafa, also known as Falun Gong, is practiced by millions of people around the world. 

    You may have read about it in the news, or perhaps come across Falun Dafa practitioners at a parade or some other civic event. It's also common to see a group of practitioners gathered in a park doing the gentle, slow moving exercises or sitting with their legs crossed in meditation.

    Most people who practice the exercises daily and follow the teachings of Falun Dafa report improvements in their health. Often, these improvements are subtle, involving such things as relief from stress, better sleep, a "lighter" and more energetic feeling, and happier moods. Many others, though, such as those whose stories are collected in this book, report dramatic health improvements, including the disappearance of life-threatening diseases."

    The book is here:
