This Journey of Life

A collaborative poem by the SBC Poetry Society





This journey of life is for the brave of heart

Cancer transformed love into a test, a bar to hit, 

a threshold to prove depth of feeling


I fight with all my might

I have discovered a sleeping knight

I hold my spirits bright

I have entered a tunnel… now searching the light


Where will this new path take us?

Make a pact to lift me when I’m down

Trust yourself, you have an inner light that will illuminate your path forward.


When sadness and desperation arise

Have the courage to open your eyes.

Look for the hands reaching out to support, 

Let kindness and love guide you


Change guides us, fearless and bold embracing a new beginning.

We have the strength to forge on

We have the strength to face each new dawn.


Our perception shapes focus,

Which in turn influences decisions 

and ultimately our happiness.


Nurture what you focus on; it blooms. 

Endurance blooms resilient, a delicate flower thriving amidst the storm,

its petals unwavering in the chilling winds of challenge.

The real beauty lies in friendship, in support and in the sisterhood of SBC.

Tell cancer to take a hike!



SBC’s Open Mic Poetry night on April 26, 2024.
