SHORT POEM BY A CHILD CANCER PATIENT: IN THE LAP OF GOD

IN THE LAP OF GOD

What was my wrong?

That you took away my song,

For when I opened my eyes,

I was in severe bites.

*

You taught me a lesson,

By plaguing me with cancer,

But I had not harmed anyone,

So why the torture?

*

As a child,

I had no devious past,

Yet you stepped on my present,

And took away my craft.

*

They call you kind,

They call you a forgiver,

Synonym for mercy,

But you left me in heresy.

*

Fear not my child,

For I’m with you every while,

And you are not alone,

In this vast world of mine.

*

For you are special,

In life’s battle,

And you are my messenger,

And you are my harbinger.

*

You puzzled me God,

You scared me God,

But after talking to you,

I am at peace God,

For I now know,

I am in your lap God.
