First was the shock
Hit by a truck
We fought together, you and I
Persistence, humor, a dollop of grit
Defiant battle cries as we took the hits
Some came and fought a battle or two
Many the whole time…the one’s like you
Round two-a surprise…..I’ve often asked why
A protracted war…it made me cry
Our fight club continues in this roundabout way
We lost another sister just the other day
“How can you go-it’s just so sad?”
But being with these women actually makes me glad
They never give up
Radiant faces in various stages
Fighting the ravages-cancer’s wages
Support and prayer
An idea or two
These women in earnest
What is your fight club?
Where do you go?
Who are the people who raise your bar?
