Help her

Everyday she watches 
sitting in that chair
her heart pounding 
constantly she stares

everyday she listens
to the reasuring sound
a steady beep a rythm
meaning a heart beat  can be found

every night she worries
when she's told that she must go
yet she knows she must be strong
her fears she must not show

everynight she comforts
her little brothers cries
while she hopes he doesn't see
the worry in her eyes

every morning she wakes up
and takes her brother to his school
then heads back up to the hospital
even though there's nothing she can do

she stays a bit then leaves
heading off to her job
but she's only seventeen
at schools where she belongs

bills to pay mouths to feed
stressing her young mind
she too young to know what to do
she's stumbling around blind

every day she worries
while she struggles to get by
everyday she watches
as her mother slowly dies
