CRUTCH

I will lean on you
You will be my crutch
As sure as the time
On my digital wrist watch
Lean on you
You will be my crutch
As sure as the time
On my digital wrist watch

But I know that there is no hiding
From what my bathroom scale’s been describing
Should I just lie to myself
Try viewing my health
Through a lens that is cleaner
Or is it, or is it?

But what my body’s been saying
And a dark voice, should I choose to listen,
“Is your great physician
As great as they say he is
Omnipotent and such
Don’t seem to help you much
The meds don’t seem to be working"
Or are they, or are they?

But this thought always still gets me
You never said it would be easy
So what is the matter
You’re climbing a ladder
The rungs getting thinner
They begin to splinter
They’re not going anywhere, anyway
Or are they, or are they?

I am sure of what I hope for often
Mostly certain of what I do not see
But father please hear me
I ask: please forgive me
For the spaces between
