Don't let it catch you

They call it darkness.

 

It creeps into homes,

It destroys and kills,

It will find you,

Seek you out,

 You can hide,

And you can run,

But it will get you.

 

They call it evil.

 

Leaves death in it's wake,

And has no mercy,

Men, women and chilren,

It takes them all,

Destroys them,

Tears them apart,

And lives on the fear it brings.

 

They call it death.

 

It spreads,

Multiplies,

And breeds,

Stealing every inch,

Every last breath,

Drawing the final moment closer,

Till you can fight no more.

 

They call it Cancer.

 

 

 

And it is here.

 

The End
