I Just Want to Live

Iím so tired of fighting
Cancer tries to steal my life
Yet still, I just want to live
I canít give up yet
I have so much to give
For the cause of Christ
Because He gives me the words
And as a writer I have to be vigilant
Ready to pen inspiring thoughts
Without hesitation, just yielding
To the Holy Spiritís prompting
For there are those who havenít heard
Or havenít acknowledged the truth
Jesus Christ is real, is alive
Offering freely eternal life
May everyone called to write
Answer the call
And continue the fight
With words divinely given
You will receive your rewards
In heaven, and so will I.

Very potently written. The desperation and yearning are palpable. Good word choices, and (as you said in your ode) very tightly written. Being effectively terse is not always easy. You succeed. Good work.

A beautiful, tender write. I enjoyed this very much. I pray if this is true and cancer is trying to steal your life that God gives you the desire and will to fight it. You do have so much more to give. May God's blessings rain down. In His LOVE, Julia
