#32 Fighting an unseen foe

Fighting an unseen foe
For Karen as she began waging war against
Colon Cancer

You didn't even know of it's existence until a short time ago
Getting you're head around what's happened and what's next
Your not one to play the blame game
Or feeling sorry for yourself 
Instead you've chosen to fight with every tool you have
Keep in mind that fighting and pushing yourself too hard
Will only weaken you
Learning to lean on those who love you for assistance
Is an adjustment that's hard to make
The price for not making it will cost you even more
In terms of energy you'll need to fight
So pick you're battles carefully
Your patience will continue to be tested
Because you want to do things for yourself
The question is should you?
If yes let no one get in your way!
Remember the stronger you are the longer you're in control of
Of your choices
Take each day as it comes
Live knowing what's important is being with the people you love
Making the most of the time we have
By doing our best to live life
Holding nothing back
