Make It

Watching you lose
Watching you hopeless
Watching you choose
Not fully focused.

Watching you embarrassed
Watching you scared
Watching you painfully
Watching you snared.

Watching a person
So far removed
Watching them hurting
Watching them lose.

Watching them seeing
All they are dim
Watching them being
As their being rots within.

Make this the last
Make effort. Make so.
Make the change fast
This is not the person I know.

Make it today
Today. Today.
Tomorrow’s away
Make it. Today.
