Matthew’s Story (Ovarian Cancer)

Your station in life can’t save you once the results have been verified
Your mouth goes dry, your nerves are shot, you simply shake, terrified
This big bad monster is at the door, no place to run and hide
You put all your faith in Jesus and ask God the father to be your guide
Trust in your doctors to make a plan designed to save your life
The pain in your heart is piercing, feels like a sharpened butcher’s knife

(Chorus)
The color doesn’t matter, if it’s ovarian teal or Komen pink
I am in the battle for my life, I could care less about what you think
Hey guys, you will never know how it feels to fight like a girl
Precious gem? Bet your ass because I am that shimmering pearl

The tumor has been confirmed, you’re in shock at the changes in your world
Holding your guts tight as you examine the stomach contents you just hurled
Ovarian cancer? NOT me, please God take this cup away
As the reality sets in, you decide cancer will have to pay
A witch slap towards cancer leaves you weak and trembling in the knees
You dig in your heels, take a stand and pray to win this war please

(Chorus)
The color doesn’t matter, if it’s ovarian teal or Komen pink
I am in the battle for my life, I could care less about what you think
Hey guys, you will never know how it feels to fight like a girl
Precious gem? Bet your ass because I am that shimmering pearl

With faith in your heart and fire in your eyes, you are determined not to quit
As the body takes this beating, you dream of the day you are once again fit
The chemotherapy leaves you drained as you wonder in the deepest darkest night
If you have the strength and courage to continue with this nasty fight
A sign from above rains down and eases the burden inside your heart
You have this divine knowledge from the temple that cancer will soon depart!

(Chorus)
The color doesn’t matter, if it’s ovarian teal or Komen pink
I am in the battle for my life, I could care less about what you think
Hey guys, you will never know how it feels to fight like a girl
Precious gem? Bet your ass because I am that shimmering pearl

AMEN
