Every second that ticks is one less on my timescale,

I know that I'm running out of time.

Every day I wake up I am grateful that this monster let me live

That it gave me a bit more time on this Earth.


Others aren't quite as lucky and their time's end

Before it can even start,

I can hear their families mourning from the opposite side of the world,

And it makes me wonder if there is any hope for a cure...


The doctor told me that I only had a few months left,

I can't imagine what my family will go through when I'm gone

When this monster chooses to take me from them, what happens then?
