I brought this on myself

Sitting here bleeding out
something good must become of this
of my own free will
I brought this on myself

The nurse looks at me with gratitude
her hands busy controlling the loss
I am not a hero I know this
people next to me in the same condition

I want my life to mean something
anonymously I may never see
At least I have my health
for how long none of us know

I will be courageous even with the pain
A little needle stick
a half a liter, I'm done, I just donated
That was not so bad,
