Survived

My best friend’s dad
survived Leukemia.
Fought it for two years.
Slept in hospital beds
for over a year.
Lost his hair. Ate the
shit food they give you
in those unrelic’d places.
Took the chemo seven
times over. Prayed.
Stood on his feet
when he could.
Can you imagine that?
Not until you’ve
lived it, I’m convinced.
