AMERICA’S Got Talent singer Nightbirde shared a personal poem revealing how she would “like to die” as she continues to battle stage 4 breast cancer.
The singer, whose real name is Jane Marczewski, published the emotional poem, which she titled A Hero in Flames, to her Instagram account.
It read: “If I were to die
It would be with the reflection of the mountains in my eyes
I would die with sun-pink cheeks
And a mouth full of blackberries
“I want to die while my heart is still a greenhouse for hope
All my wild dreams as seedlings in egg cartons
Reaching toward the window
“I cannot die yellow and hungry
I will not die in sterile air
“But I would like to die
While the fireflies are still glowing
Morse coding their poetry for a cynical earth
“I would like to die like Joan of Arc
With dignity and urgency and stubbornness
A watercolor portrait in the night
A sight to behold, a hero in flames.
The 30-year-old, who impressed judge Simon Cowell so much with her audition that he decided to send the singer straight to the live shows, announced on-air that her cancer had taken a turn for the worse.
During her audition, Nightbirde revealed to the judges that her cancer had spread to her lungs, spine and liver, and that doctors had only given her a two per cent chance of survival.
In July 2020 the singer went into remission, although the cancer later returned.
In a recent photo, the sick singer shocked fans by revealing she now weighs just 85 pounds.
Sharing the snap on Instagram, she smiled, holding on to an IV pole, and captured the pic: “Ever seen 85 pounds look so good????”
But in a recent online revelation, the frail star opened up about her cancer battle, and how much her fans’ support meant to her.
Nightbirde began: “Hi, I just want to say thank you so much for all the encouragement, support and love, from all over the world.
“Thanks for believing in me and cheering me on and believing for impossible things.”
She also told fans she was “excited to see” how her “story plays out.”
Nightbirde added: “I’m so glad you guys are along for the ride now. So I’m excited to see what happens if we don’t give up, all of us together.
“I love you guys.”
