Ecstasy of companionship
Loving family
Everything in place

The clear glass shatters
Hopelessness in the sunken eyes
Lives are flipped around
Never to be the same

The doctor walks in
Just another patient
Another life turned upside down
The pitiful smile
Twisting her face

It isn’t another kid
It’s you
No one else to take this away
This is your reality

Tears want to fall
But they’re trapped in a cell
A prison of emotion
It seems unreal

Reminded constantly
By the nagging
The ‘helpful’ comments
That widens the gaping pit

Building back up
Pushing past
Held back
Chained to the prison wall

Dreams can fly
But reality falls.
