Today
Rylie, Age 12, St. Thomas, ON

Cancer
an ugly word
and it will change your life forever.

I am in the hospital
waging a war on the intruder
in my body.
My roommate
gets radiation
and no one can stand in the room with him
while it is thrust into his body.
The shackles that bind me
to the pain
and suffering
and hell
will hold me
until I die.

Today
is different.
Today
I die.
Today
the pain ends.
Today
I go to the soft billowing clouds.
Today
I go to heaven.
Today
I go home.
