It Must Be Nice

I think of how it must be nice  
To wake up and be healthy  
And we exist so commonly  
There's no sympathy  
Or understanding  

It must be nice knowing
You don't NEED medicine to survive  
It must be nice to wake in the morning  
Knowing the president's bill won't affect your life  
 
It must be nice not worrying  
Of when insurance can say no  
To the disease you were born carrying  
Four grand a month is just too much dough  
 
It must be nice not contemplating  
The burden you'd lay on everyone  
The ones who would go in debt to help  
When the money is too much for one  
 
It must be nice to want to live  
To not contemplate how you'd do it  
Waiting for the day you can't afford to breathe  
And refuse to die slow as their puppet  
 
Sometimes it's nice  
To distract ourselves  
Helping others and doing what no one does  

But it must be nice  
For those who exist  
Who don't greet death when they wake and still live on.
