Becoming a Cancer Warrior #Leukaemia

Writing is my therapy and this piece has been running around in my head for a long while so I finally decided to write in down… hope you enjoy and understand

She Became A Warrior

At first she was a reluctant gladiator thrown into the ferocious battle that became her life, unequipped and powerless but with little choice after a cruel twist of fate… she had to become a warrior…

Swallowing down the sickening fear that overwhelmed her senses she advanced forward fighting through the sea of flames in her path, burning her as she passed… she had to become a warrior…

Striving for control, her aim clear and in command of her new found power the thunder of determination crashing through her mind, liquid titanium coursing through her veins, her eyes brightly animated,  a truly unstoppable soul .  Her theatre of war may not be a battlefield but it’s no less fatal or terrifying  … she had to become a warrior

Upon seeing her reflection, though she doesn’t look like a battle weary soldier her wounds are no less damaging … she has become a warrior.

Now she stands, strong yet weak, knowing yet naive, custodian for future casualties. She is determined to help others who are floundering, drawn to her side by their own adversity.  She holds out her hand in silent encouragement and together they become one force declaring ‘we’ve come to burn your throne to ashes and destroy your reign’ together they became warriors.

Yearning for her life as it was before but she has seen her destiny now, knows her purpose, handling it with dignity.  When the sun does down and quietness falls she’s just a girl who wants to live craving life and all its magic.

She will forever be a warrior…
