Question

Guest

I've had a disease

for two thirds of your life

what caused it to be

sprung from great strife

I'm losing my breath

as the disease progresses

I'm certain of death

When I observe the masses

so please play your part

and give me your time

It's stopping my heart

and choking my mind

Do you know what I have?

Or are you just dumb?

If I'm one you can save,

you can change the outcome.

added verse might make it easier

I've had a disease

for two thirds of your life

what caused it to be

sprung from great strife

I'm losing my breath

as the disease progresses

I'm certain of death

When I observe the masses

so please play your part

and give me your time

It's stopping my heart

and choking my mind

though you will give some assistance

some would just have me burned

please give it some sense

and claim what you've earned

Do you know what I have?

Or are you just dumb?

If I'm one you can save,

you can change the outcome.

An addiction to smoking or an actual cigarette it's self? or Tobacco?

"sprung from great strife" can be started smoking from stress.

"losing my breath" is self explanatory with regards to smoking.

"i'm certain of death when i observe the masses" many people in the world tend to smoke.

the next stanza is self explanatory describing the negative effects of smoking

and the hint stanza, "some would just have me burned" could be a personification of a cigarette it's self?

"claim what you've earned" could refer to cancer?

and the hint with "stopping your heart" and "choking your mind" could be second hand smoke?

I dono, it's far fetched, but it makes sense. Despite the fact you said it's not so much an affliction or addiction.

the love of money? or paying taxes

Your guess is the closest yet. You need to be more specific though.
