Scott, well penned.
Started with sad tune and ended on an optimistic note.
I saw my uncle in his final days. He was a cancer patient. I know it very well how brutal cancer can go if undetected at early stage.
And Yes, God, he is the superhero above all.
Scott. I cannot even think of what to say about this write because it struck a chord with me so much. I have a condition called idiopathic intracranial hypertension which before I was diagnosed the specialists thought I had a brain tumour (I do because of the condition but not life threatening apart from to my eye sight as they put pressure on them) anyway.. it also hit home because my friends nan and grandad both died from cancer and my own grandad is a survivor of this horrible disease which takes no prisoners, I also have a friend who is only my age (28) who is in remission from breast cancer but is still having lots of tests. I love the whole content and how you introduce this powerful thing to us, it's hard hitting which I like because so is cancer itself but we can defeat it and I hope someday they will find a cure for all cancers but I think it will be when we are all on the other side. I have to disagree with God helping though and I'll probably regret saying it but my friends nan and grandad were true Christian yet my grandad and my friend weren't maybe it's something to do with it being their time though I don't know.
I wish I hadn't used my votes up though as this is poetic in rhyme and just pure genius.
Wow....I feel like I can't even use words to explain the power I felt in this. My hopes and prayers go out to you and as much as the topic is so depressing, you've managed to make it almost playful and I can see you still have so much positivity! Best of luck to you and I wish i could nominate right now!
The capeless crusader by Scott Cole points: 10
Scott has been on a role recently but this piece struck a real chord with me as I have known the affects cancer has first hand not just for the person suffering but for those loved ones around them too, it seems cancer has no prisoners and doesn't care (if it could) how it affects people and those around them. I like how Scott shows the power of this disease by comparing it to super heroes because it has a strength no of us know of ever will know. Scott's rhyming is as ever spot on too
