DNR= Do Not Resuscitate

This diminishing heartbeat devastating the degrees of hope
now my crying counseling confessions trying to stay afloat.
These conscious confrontations, mind-numbing equations
agony authorizing my last resort, the pulling of life support.
Chance choice of closure collapse in catastrophic complications
advised on accepted effects of anxiety in this willful asphyxiation.
A battle beseeching, eyes! no longer blinking, what am I thinking
coma fed brain dead! administration said! was confidentiality read
Desolate the dread, this damaging decision’s denial and the dead
the frantic fluids of fate frighten!  frustration before debilitating
The doctor stands at the gate! DNR it states! Do Not Resuscitate,
machines feeding dreams, the lost miracle I’m becoming hysterical
Patient pretense, its policies protocol for those who would read this,
diagnosis disclosures destiny’s decisions, lacking room for revisions.

I'm a father, friend, and a family man, I believe in right and wrong, I understand the value of standing on your own. I have an iron will with a poet's heart, a belief in God is where it starts.
