You wrecked me
when you went away;
pierced my heart
and it's bleeding.
I'm numb and haunted
by your memory.
There's no way
around the loss;
and I don't know
how to recover.

I told you not to
take the poison,
but they scared you,
and tricked us.
Now, they're rich,
and I'm destitute;
shattered to the core.

The only ray of hope
is knowing I'll see you
again someday.
Through the pearly gates,
we'll talk as we walk
on the glorious streets
of gold.


Taking the poison can mean many different things. In this poem, it is the radiation my mom was given for Stage 0 breast cancer. I fully believe this caused her to develop lung cancer, and she died 10 months after completing radiation. Chemo and radiation only kill daughter cells, not stem cells. It only shrinks the cancer and the moment you stop radiation or chemo, the cancer starts to grow again (This info is not my opinion, and came from over 100 doctors worldwide). I found this out too late for my mom, but I will spend the rest of my life warning others about the dangers of chemo and radiation. Doctors DO know this, but they will NOT tell you. Why? Because cancer is a 287 billion dollar a year industry! Cancer means your body's DNA has stopped communicating. Please watch the series below, and decide for yourself. I wish no one else to go through the devastating loss I've experienced!
