A robber of mothers, wives, and womanhood.
A destroyer of the feminine physique.
A plague that can also strike men too.
This insipid disease needs to be cured.
Never wanting to need a pink ribbon again.
Never needing to take strides for miles and money.
Never having to don a pink tutu to draw attention.
That is the true goal of what we fight for.
But it hasn’t disappeared despite efforts.
Advancements made, but still some succumb.
Let these mothers raise their children;
Let grandkids know their grandparents;
Let women grow old with their partners.
Disappear from this earth, never to harm another chest again.
Breast Cancer, give us our boobies back!
