'Cancer is poetic, but it's also...'

'how many of these touching symbols are real, and how much of this is just me analyzing life like literature, trying desperately to make sense of it, to provide some sort of character arc that makes it OK? The truth is that it is profoundly not OK. Cancer is poetic, but it's also fucking bullshit. Two contradictory things being true at once -- that's something my mom has always delighted in.'

Poetic in the sense it brings you to an immediate realisation of oh shit someone might die... Blunt, yes, but if subjects like this doesn't put things into a clear picture what would for you?
