A Song For all The Mamas, Strong & Gone | Original Song by Riston Diggs

by TeamIHadCancer | Survivor: Breast Cancer    Connect


A few months ago, we shared a son's spoken word poem that he had written for his mom while she was battling breast cancer. He was devastated about her diagnosis - he knew that she was going to be able to fight it but he had a hard time figuring out how to express his emotions. We loved his poem, so we shared it with all of you!

After we shared his song, Riston contacted us and told us he was going to inspire others going through the situation. After countless hours of high end music production and pushing himself to be vulnerable, the song "Mama Had Cancer" is ready. This one goes out to all the mamas, strong & gone, you will never be forgotten. Click the play button below to listen to Riston's new song: Mama Had Cancer.



If you like the song, be sure to let Riston know - and to stream it! Per Riston's kindness, all the proceeds will be donated to IHadCancer. Streaming platforms include Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal!

Verse 1

God why I’m feeling this commotion
Feeling like I’m drowning somewhere in the ocean
Nobody ever taught me how to deal with my emotions
I put it in my music, why my heart feel broken
You can’t feel nothing bout what I felt when mama got sick off in that place
I know you say you sorry for me
But I hope that you cannot never relate
With sickness that’s killing
The way my mama is living
I pray I can be the difference
And stay her reason for living
We bout to beat it mama

Chorus 1

Cuz she’s a real one
For now, Forever!
She’s a real one
For now, Forever!
Keep on living through me,
Keep on living through me
When you lost one
You learn the meaning of life
You only get one
Pray daily that’s the only way I’m helping
Got me out here begging for blessing

Verse 2

God give me a answer
I need me a answer
How you let my sweet old lady get cancer
Is it cuz my focus was consistent with my mission
And never took my time to ever ask her how she feeling
Now that you done slowed me down
Ima have to find me another route
Coach class ticket back to the south
My spirit went down mama said be proud
I raised u as king
I gave you what need
You bleed what I bleed
I taught you to be free
I told you have dream
I told you go achieve
If I die right now, you better still believe
Ima do that there for show mama
Ima teach em what you taught me when you gone mama
Ima never feel like I’m any so alone mama
You always told me that you raised me super strong mama
Because you strong mama yeah

Chorus 2

Cuz she’s a real one
For now, Forever
She’s a real one
For now, Forever!
Keep on living through me!
Keep on living through me!
When you lost one
You learn the meaning of life
You only get one
Pray daily dats the only way I’m helping
Got me out here begging for blessing
