i.

There she goes

Again

Back to the hospital

Like it knows no end

It doesn't and something is wrong 

ii.

Her ringtone

My college fight

Song

I no longer associate it

With the pride of my school

But with heartbreak

Of a daughter's rule 

iii.

McKenzie says it’ll be alright

That God has it in his hands

But my earthly control

Has found its bound

But I’m doing all I can 

iv.

Hydration comes

From an iv drip

And animal crackers

Not native tongue

Fall

From her lip 

v.

The dogs are barking again

Underdog in tow

There he goes 

Confused

Stressed

A soothing collar around his neck 

vi.

I have to be strong for them

The granddaughter 

Without her brother

Is expected to be

Older than she is 

Anxiety
