Go Higher


One gene

One cell

One little mishap

One gone wrong

None goes well

 

The disease

The struggle

Come together

Make their lives

For the better

 

A very sticky situation

Has been placed

on our own selves

This is the rare redirection

That destroys our sibling’s health

 

Their loss

Make it good

Make it whatever they dream

It’s not yours

But it will help them

Do it for them

 

The end may be approaching

For them and your soul

But they go towards the north

They’ll go higher up

They’ll be the ones to make others look up.
