6 is 4 too many

6 is 4 too many


the shit begins to hit the fan,

what happened to my right to choose?

They smile and nod, they understand

informing me I can’t refuse.


The consequences of my choice

reach father than what I now see

perhaps I can’t hear with the noise

how many doctors do I need?


If I say NO you will inform

those who control my destiny

you’ve washed your hands of me once more

and I’ll lose my security.


How many doctors must I see

to get one who will understand?

I’m going blind they all agree,

I’m unwilling to risk their plans.


Let me accept the consequence

for a lifetime of choices made

I’ve lived my life without regret

it may be sad, but I’m okay.
