    • First cry of newborn tunes in no language,

    • Last breath exits the body with no change,

    • Flows between these moments inside every human,

    • Blood in the same color, vigor, and dynamic rage!

    • Life exists uniquely in this vast universe,

    • Race, creed, and tones defined by us are so diverse,

    • Cancer invades cells, inhabits, indulges inside,

    • Unperturbed, unkeen about the external divide !

    • Then why! one needs to cry out in agony,

    • Staring helpless with no rescue, no money,

    • Broken, often with the new cancer diagnosis,

    • Moving ahead, enduring thorns of financial crisis,

    • Pain of body and the endless suffering of mind,

    • Is same one emotion for each, every humankind!

    • Worse than death is to simply live on through,

    • When what next to do is known, but no means to!

    • Cancer is one enemy, but why we stay far apart?

    • Truth exists as one Life, let us together start,

    • Not merit but by chance, some born amidst charms,

    • Every bit matters, when we give, we open our arms!

    • Inclusiveness toward humanity is our responsibility,

    • Health, equity, and access to all, our eternal duty,

    • Staying as one life against cancer on scale global,

    • Ensures every patient gets treated optimally well!
