They say 'write about just what you know',
But I know nothing of how these cancers grow,
But hopefully it will be slow, So we can take our time,

Because if I break down my mother will too,
Because this thing my father's going through,
Thinking it would be easier if I had it too,
So he'd have someone to relate to.

Home won out in the end,
And the stone in my shoe, it has taken my leg.

So we'll focus on the problems of others,
Try to find ourselves new sisters and brothers,
'Cause my chances of survival must be slim,
'Cause I've got the same genes as him,

An artist told me to paint just what I see,
But all I see casts doubt in me,
So I think I'll just paint a big black spot,
For all the things I forgot.
