Read Poem: DISEASE, by Marilyn E. Garcia

It takes form as weakness
Its shapes vary in sizes of all kind
It grows, it flows, and gets nourishment from the weak
It affects the young, old, and the people we cherish
It can penetrate through the bones
It hovers around cells
It can cause heartache
It is your worse headache
It can cut off body parts
It can cause blindness
It sometimes cannot be seen
It can temporarily disappear
It comes in stages and is ageless
It stops for no one
It waits forever with no time limit
It doesn’t discriminate
It runs rampant through bloodstreams
It affects the graceful and is elaborate
It waits there for just the right time to standstill
It kills
