Blue Pill of Courage

Posted to Poetry

I wish it were that simple
But things in this life rarely are
To think of swallowing pills
that would lend someone courage
is selfish

But to stand here
watching you suffer
unable to do a damn thing
while cancer eats you up cell by cell
is hardly benevolent

My brother,
it is your suffering I wish to ease (if I only knew how)

Not my own...
