On This Side

Like the rug being pulled out
From under my feet, it feels
Wrong, unfair, ridiculous
Something better is out there
But I have to endure more
Pain before I am allowed

To try or even dream it
Sure feels like I've done my time
Already, but clearly not
To those deciding what's "best"
If they just knew how things felt
On this side of the needle....

I think things would be different.
