Remission

Good news,he says

another two years

before i start my decline.



I guess the bad news

was i lost thirty years of my life

never being a mother,a wife.



You lose

all hopes and dreams

you go into your shell

your private prison

your living hell.



But theres always a chance

of remission he says

another chance to build hopes and dreams

always looking over my shoulder

wondering how long it will last.



It`s like a bad dream from the past

Oh i could be brave and smile

knowing i was dying all the while.



Two years or remission

which one should i choose

either way i would still lose.
