CANCER'S TREASURE TROVE
by Chris Gonzalez
Daughter of the luminous moon, the hard-shelled crab flows with the tides.
She carefully navigates rough waters, with a gait that moves side to side.
We often get the wrong impression when she's overcome with tears;
Like others of her element, she's stronger than she appears.
This sign's modus operandi is to nurture and to care;
She is the model of the mother extraordinaire.
Cancer shows us how to protect what we value and those we love,
Through her, we learn how feelings are life's greatest treasure trove.
Her power is rooted in a steadfast resistance;
She does not confront, instead using persistence.
Standing her ground for what she believes,
Defending her moral stance, with which others will come to agree.
