Melanoma Awareness

Standard
Saturday 1st May 
.
Wall to wall sunshine, bodies on the beach
Cooking away nicely, "Sunscreen!" I beseech

Vitamin D is necessary, please don't get me wrong
But frying like a lobster, damage could be life long

So many burnt shoulders, peeling, unsightly skin
D'you know what you've done? What's going on, within?

Melanoma; skin cancer, might not happen today
But a few years down the line, it'll be nothing to downplay

You can't just cut it out, for it's a sneaky beast
Lying dormant, then, like a devil, released

Taking over your life, biopsies, skin grafts
Scans and appointments, normality's in the past

Just always worrying, asking when it will return
Scanxiety, melanoia, a real cause for concern

So slap on some sunscreen, and wear a big hat
Seek shade when it's hot, prevention's where it's at

Melanoma awareness throughout the month of May
But it mustn't stop here, care for your skin everyday

I wrote this last year, but wanted to post again as May is Melanoma Awareness Month
