S for Staying Alive

Sick her kid was
Turning uneasily on bed
Acute stomach pain hurting
Young thing needed medicine
Impoverished she was completely
Nowhere to seek help
Grim was her condition

Angry at cruel society
Life now at threat
Implored the only doctor
Very kind he was
Emergency treatment he started


Written for Acrostic Only

Prompt: Staying Alive

Also for Leo's Z to A Challenge for the month of November.
