Broken Doll

I don't see

How they can deny me

Healthcare insurance.

I didn't chose to be born this way.

--- A preexisting condition

But, I was born a broken doll.

Now they tell me

"We're sorry (yeah…right) but you don't qualify.

How on earth am I supposed to afford my meds?

Am I going to be

Consistently and perpetually

Having seizures on the street?

The healthcare insurance company did this

---denied me

---locked me out in the dark cold

I crumbled and broke down

I wept and cried bitter tears

Why can

The big machine of a company

Deny me

For a preexisting condition?

I am just a broken doll.
