Survivors - a poem for cancer patients

Craig Caldwell

South Africa


Have you ever stopped to wonder

    Why itís so calm after a storm?

All the evil in the world

    Seems to be somehow washed away

The world seems so perfectly right

    The way God intended

Sometimes a storm appears in our lives

    There seems no way out

We focus on the negatives

    And seldom see the positives

But when we do, we find that

    The problem can be overcome

We get that zest for life

    We appreciate the fit of life more

I believe we, as survivors,

    Show those positive signs

We have the will to live

We overcome temporary setbacks

    And come out a stronger person

We look forward to the future

We are able to set and achieve goals

Itís our positive state of mind that

    Makes us survivors.
