Some things in life are inevitable,
we will love we will hate we will stand and we will fall.
Many things in life leave questions without answer,
why do we lose the ones we love to that "Silent killer" called cancer.

Some times we are left empty and bare
walking this world alone without a care
hearts ripped from our chest while still beating
no one in our lives are worth losing

I'll never forget as a kid, hearing the words the doctors said
"we're sorry to tell you, he didn't make it" my grandfather was dead.
many times since then my family has been struck
cancer taking over our family and just not giving a f*ck

Why? why does there have to be
such painful it is to see
our loved ones suffering like they do
finding a cure seems too impossible to be true.

How many loved ones does it take
before doctors cure them without a mistake.
trying to forget the awful things cancer has done
lets fight this battle together, because it needs to be won!
