Once upon a cancer cell,
A lady began to yell, “I am sick of crying, and all the people dying, these treatments are hell!!
I NEED to laugh, to find the humor, in this world filled with seriousness and tumors!!
I KNOW others have this same need, and so I plead to hear their humors,
Of what makes them giggle, chuckle, or even grin, at this disease I wish was in the trash bin!!
It dawned on me one day, create the stage, invite them to play their stories out from within,
All shared on a platform for all, the internet, on websites I shall call: Canswear and Canshare!!
One for adults and one for youth, you see, as we have different needs for our stories to be bared,
All in public, for the world to see, each of us has a story to share, from you to me!!
That is my simple wish for us all, a place to call “home” when we need a laugh, see
or to share one of our wonderful thoughtful thoughts,
About this world of cancer, the treatments, the after effects, oh, what a wreck, and fraught
With frustration, angst, worry, and hurry, so stop for a laugh and find your way
To have a little mental break, for our sanity is at stake, in the crazy day
That life becomes when faced with those errant cells that are within ourselves!!
My hope is that I have given the gift of some joy with a joke, and for a moment you dwell
In a world of “LOse fear, haVE HOPE”, because it sure would be dope,
If you sent your story to me, as laughter is how I cope!!” ~ Dara Insley
