It starts with a lump
Then a feeling of doubt
"Did I really just feel that?"
"No it couldn't be, breast cancer? Me? No. That couldn't possibly be what it is"
The month's pass by and the lump is still there.
In fact it feels bigger, and it hurts a little.
Sitting in a cold room
Thoughts pass by
I have cancer?
The diagnostics comes back,
"I'm sorry to inform you that you've been diagnosed with breast cancer"
Warm tears fall to the ground
It has a preference...
AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMEN.
But it will not discriminate.
It doesn't prefer older people over younger people.
It comes with a silent warning...
Go it checked...
