Best Poetry Search on Poems About Death, The Brain Tumor

Updated on March 19, 2012

You have hit upon a best poetry search on death.  Here you will read about the effects of a brain tumor. 

Brain Tumour

There he is, there he goes – dead man walking – not in those clothes!

The jersey joggers, the flimsy shorts, dead man walking, his head hangs low.

What is the matter? Why are you vague?

Dead man mutters.. poor sod, see him stag,

Has my time come yet? I can not say, the words just seem to slip by the way.

Your head has a dull ache, your brow full of sweat,

Dead man progresses, your bed you will wet.

Dead man but guesses, but what will come next?

Zapped by a thunder, right to your core –

A son ushered by mother, asking for more,

Leading him out, outside to the car, dead man just walks and travels so far.

Dead man knows not, for he lives in the now…

The dreaming… the dreaming…the final bow.

      A terrible disease explained very empathically in a poetic context. Very strong and thought provoking writing. Written with a sence of knowing. Thank you.

      One day he was fine within 3, totally disabled - couldn't walk, talk and all memory gone. It was shocking to see the change. I don't think he knew much about it. He wasn't distressed. It was the family that suffered mostly.

      In my experience, most people survive cancer and those that are diagnosed as terminal, treatment extends life. There are great strives in treatment. Watch this space for nanos!

      My experience with this gentleman taught me a great deal. The experience with holding his hand through his journey had a ripple affect on others. I would say on the volunteer front, I am soughted out to help people with brain tumours. Organisers designate these patients to me.

      Knowing this man, therefore, has been a blessing. His suffering was not in vein.

      Thank you for reading this hub x
