Poet’s Cor­ner

10 Years

Halifax Courier - - This Week In Court -

“For Can­cer the chap­ter is fi­nally closed.” A head­line that will come one day I sup­pose. How long will it take? No­body knows. But as it goes the fund­ing for the re­search rose to al­most dou­ble in 10 years. Another decade and we could see the tears of loved ones dis­ap­pear and the fears just melt away. I don’t want hope to fade. We still need to per­suade it that it’s had its day. Can­cer, let’s not play games it’s time to de­cay. You’ve caused enough de­struc­tion. I’m not ask­ing you, it’s an in­struc­tion. Let our bod­ies do their bod­ily func­tions and ad­mit that the head­line above isn’t a pre­sump­tion. Ev­ery story has a be­gin­ning, mid­dle and end. I won’t pre­tend I am not go­ing to en­joy spend­ing my time read­ing the last para­graph of yours.
