If cancer is a gift
then I’d like the receipt please,
and as my mother said to me once,
it’s true you do learn a lot from this disease
but Jesus there are easier ways to learn things,
and I really appreciated my life any way,
even if I was guilty of not seeing this coming,
and I had plenty of other interesting topics to write about,
so didn’t really need the inspiration, and most of all,
it is not good for my son to break away from me
or become independent or learn to be a big boy now.
He is two years old, he needs his mother.
I know you mean well but you can take
this whole being positive lark
just a bit too far in my opinion.
