Mayday

Mayday

The clock is counting down

Only 5 minutes to go until the class will begin

If things were different this journey would not have occurred

If your body hadn’t betrayed you in the worst way

Reducing your strength until you shake with effort

Replacing smooth unhurried words with stuttering beats

Now each day is built around the those pills you need

Just to walk out the door to survive

So today as the clock counts down

The destination is ahead as I knew it would always be

And the journey will be a long one

Intertwined as our lives have been since my birth

This shift of power from one to another has been written in the stars for sometime

And nothing more needs to be said
