Relentless And Radiant

Relentless And Radiant short poem

Photo by AlicePopkorn

The soft-spoken man,
and the twinkle in his eyes.
The exuberance he contains,
is incongruous with
his seemingly frail body.

His diligent yoga practice;
his sincere enthusiasm,
about the fruit diet;
the radiance with which,
he undergoes radiation;
and his zest for life,
is impalpable.

For the amount of life he lives,
in his life that is contained;
I wonder whether the cancer is killing him,
or he is killing the cancer.
