Not Going to Make It
By Mike Stevens
When this first happened, I told myself not to listen
To anything negative that anyone said
I was told by a doctor; was like a slap in the face;
This is all, what I have now was probably it
This was totally unacceptable to me,
I told myself they were wrong; I had to think that way
But, as the time disappears, I’ve got to face the sad fact
That they’re maybe right, and I’ve been wrong
That possibility chills me to the marrow
You can only tell yourself they’re wrong for just so long
At a certain point, you have to face the truth
I can see little differences; feel much-too-slow improvements,
But does it really change things in the long run?
