This Can’t Be Happening To Me Again

This Can’t Be Happening Again

I walked into the hospital today
It looks the same
It’s only been six months
(of course it looks the same)
The volunteer at the front desk
didn’t remember me
The registrar didn’t remember me
She put the wristband on me,
but I’m still no one to her
Just a number
I can hide as long as no one remembers me
The CT scan guy didn’t remember me
Still not happening to me as long as
No one remembers me
Oh crap
The anesthesia guy remembers me
I think the lady who took my blood remembers me
Oh crap
It’s real
It’s happening again
I don’t want it to happen again
Not again please
I don’t want to be a patient again
Well, here we go
I guess it will be okay

I'm a Southern girl at heart who wants to build a community of people who believe they can change the world with words like "love" and "freedom" when they become more than words, but actions in our work and our daily lives.
