A Reflection of 2016

Needless to say, 2016 has been a crazy year. As for every other year that has come and gone there have been many up’s and down’s in 2016. Something that happens at the end of a year is people reflect back on all of the awful and terrible things that occurred in that year. Why must people have to focus on the negatives?

With that being said, here is a POSITIVE Reflection of 2016…

Dear Cancer

Dear Cancer,

How can you take so many people’s lives and not be affected by any of it?¬†How can you refuse or respond treatment or any help? Can you not see how hard they are trying rid themselves of you? Don’t you have anything better to do than infest our bodies until we can’t take anymore? Don’t you ever hate yourself for you actions or do you just not feel any guilt for everything you put people through? Don’t you have any emotions or feelings for others or are you really that selfish that you have to feed off of other people? How can you live with yourself? Honestly.
