Immunodeficient

By    

You were born immunodeficient.

While you can’t be blamed for your flawed genes,

You didn’t do anything to protect yourself either.

That was my responsibility.

For 13 years, I fought your disease—

Murdered your parasite, battled your cancer.

But, I got sick.

Tried as I might, I couldn’t kill your virus.

Letting it consume you was the only way to save me.

Your son was born immunodeficient.

While you can’t be blamed for flawed genes,

You’re not doing anything to protect him either.
