In a world that is so full of people who try to hurt each other
Instead of getting along like your sister or your brother
Everyone is always fighting for the little things they need
While the credit card companies are raising rates due to greed
The health care agencies stamp their verdict for you
On these short little forms that can take away your care so true
We need to make sure that the money we are going to give
Provides the care our elders need in order to be sure they live
When someone needs a level of care and they are told no
So many of them do not understand that they need to fight and show
That they will stand up and speak their minds and try to get what they need
It is not to be selfish, it is for their health and welfare indeed.
I have learned to fight real hard to keep my mom at home you see
No matter what the health agency has tried they do not want to deal with me.
My mom has last stage ALZ and it is heartbreaking and sad
I will not allow her to not get the care no matter who get mad
For all of you who will not put your parent in a nursing home
Do all you can and fight for their rights and let your voice be known.
