How much more blood must be shed for healing?
How much more red must stain the badge of courage?
How much more tears must be shed for pain without end?
Or for life not meant to be lived?
How much more money must be spent to please men in suits
Who give you pills, tell you you're fine and send you home?
How much more pain must be endured
Before one can be called courageous?
How much more dignity remains to be stolen?
How much more hidden must be exposed?
How many more years,
How many more tears,
How many more fears
remain in this failing,
defective, hollow shell I call a body?
Never enough... never enough.
