To Fight A Disease

Outside a Starbucks two young women the power to unity on display
Against a disease that is hell bent to destroy all  that gets in its way
90 days  for one listening to a sponsor with a year and a half
Both trying so hard to stay floating in the saving life raft
You cannot keep what you cannot give away
Always a hand extended to display
A disease that when it turns without hesitation kills
But not before racking up the divorce, job loss, and health bills
Two women book in hand going into the breech
Two women one a sponsor trying to the lessons teach
Both a better place trying to reach
While dodging the loss of spirit this disease tries to leach
