There’s a monster in my closet and it feeds on all my fears,
Like the monster in my body, it’s been living there for years.
I thought I’d killed these demons, laid them all to rest,
But the nastiest of the monsters set up home within my chest.
I’m strong and I’m a fighter, but I’d hoped to find some aid,
I learn to prize-fight solo, it’s me on this crusade.
I want to seal my future with much more than nothingness,
A sea joy and laughter so this fight’s not meaningless.
Life is what we make it, whether days or months or years,
I’m here for those who love me, I don’t want to bring you tears.
It’s love that keeps me fighting, it sees me through the pain.
It’s hope that keeps me smiling, stops me going half insane.
To all dear friends and family,
When this time is done and through,
Know that you’re my Chi, my life-force
So much love I hold for you.
