    His Poem:

    'I Wonder Why ... '
    [​IMG]
    by Izeyah Yenter

    I wonder why He chose me,
    A cell growing out of control so rapidly.
    I wonder why He chose me,
    A tumor on my brainstem that nobody could see.
    I wonder why He chose me,
    A year to live, it just can't be.
    There are so many things that I still want to be,
    I wonder why He chose me.
    Hospitals, doctors, MRI scans, and shots,
    the pills I can swallow, the Thick-It I can not.
    I wonder why He chose me,
    To teach me and the world that only He holds the key,
    To miracles, cures, blessings, and love,
    God holds the keys to all of the above.
    I no longer wonder why He chose me,
    I live everyday as if it is my last
    and be the best I can be.
