White Gowns and Bright Lights

White gowns and bright lights.
There’s sorrow on the wall.
Bad food and long nights;
I try to walk but fall.
The sound of beeping never ends.
Loved ones trying to make amends,
but I just want to feel good again.
Before I lost it all.
Hanging on that voice inside,
telling me that if I try
to keep my strength and spirit high,
soon the pain will pass me by.
White gowns and bright lights.
I struggle but I’m still alive.
