I KNOW YOU’RE THERE
I know you’re there waiting in silence,
Growing ever slightly lest I suspect;
You think you have all the power, don’t you?
But you’ve made a mistake-you chose the wrong breast.
I will not falter or hide in fear,
I will hunt you down with a surgeon’s knife;
Whether you’re benign or malignant,
You will not stop me from living life.
I know you’re there, I can feel the lump,
But hope and faith are on my side;
And Wednesday you will rue the day
You found my breast in which to hide.
My doctor and I – we make a great team,
A biopsy will prove you benign;
For my life is my own and there’s no room for you.
So start packing now and say your goodbyes.
