“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.”
