She pranced so gracefully all day
For whoever wanted to see
What a beauty she could be.
Then one day her world came crashing down
Without a warning or a single sound
The doctor said she couldn't dance no more.
Her feet didn't have the strength to grow
The cancer had reached the centre of her bone
She tried to swing but only groaned
She watched the other girls moving their feet
So gracefully and so much at peace
She missed the days when she walked the stage
When the applause was deafening , difficult to gauge
It's then when she saw how much she missed
She had lost her hair
But the truth was this
Dance was the language of her soul
Even if it meant moving with the help of a pole
She wanted to shine like a crazy diamond
And not be a coal.
She put her dancing shoes back on.
She went through chemo everyday
Tired and in pain she ended each night
But determined to come out a winner in this fight.
She made her way to recovery
With a zeal for life
She beat the cancer and won over the strife
Yes life is tough and it will put you down
Don't fret , don't fear
Don't kneel , don't frown
Make your way and live it through
For a better me and a better you
But you know what the least you can do for yourself is not give up on that one thing that makes you complete :)
Khud bhi utho , aur uss baawri umeed ko bhi uthao
