“Its supposed to happen quick

In a moment

There and not there.

Nobody ever talks the drag,

Those that don’t get instant gratification. 

Those that slip away into the doctors, monitors and medications, 

And the family that waits silently, screaming on the inside

hoping and praying and wishing for a miracle on the outside.

Nobody ever talks about the drag

Those that don’t get instant gratification,

Waiting for Friday, like a promised vacation.”
