The life of the young and sick ((poetry))

August 27, 2012

The life of the young and sick

We watch as life for others goes round and round

All the while our lives seem like they are slowing down

Doctor, doctor, help me

Waiting for hours in a crowded lobby

Hoping for a doctor who cares and treats us like a friend

Into the exam room and quickly herded out again

Treated as a number not as women and men

We pray for a cure adamantly

All we want is to be healthy
