I always wake up with a dreaded feeling inside
Knowing that today could be the day I die
Because you see, I don't have the luxury of going through life
Wondering what it would be like to not have something by my side
I have to go through life, anchored and chained
Afraid that I have to remain in one single place
Not allowed to venture off into the distance
Because my whole existence is based on whether or not
My prescription can be filled and once again give me sustenance
Because 30 days is my limit
Living everyday counting down the minutes
I give new meaning to the phrase "living life to the fullest"
So when you ask me "what I can't live without?"
My response will always be to tell you about
The sleepless nights where I cry my eyes out
Or the days when I'm filled with doubt
At how my life isn't "one step at a time"
It's "one pill at a time"
Constantly having to walk in a straight line
All because of faulty enzymes
And since birth I've been cursed
Wanting to reverse what makes me, me
To no longer be an anchored soul
And be allowed to walk through life alone
Not needing to know where the closest pharmacy is to me
Because even with all my ambition
I can't live without my medication...
