I hated disease, the bug that eats one up
Cancer, ulcer, kidney and cardiac failure
All being savage, truss their nails like man-eaters
In demoniac ache, soon the ailing calls God.
In the pool of pus and blood, life stinks
Cancer seized my mother, diabetes dragged my father
The goddess of compassion, my wife has no heart
Living on pacemaker, how can I hate disease?
Disease a friend, no more an unknown being
If I cannot disband, better befriend the sting.
If I cannot live without God, will live his absence
Painful loneliness to cherish in silence.
