An Opiate for the Masses: Anti-Depressants

October 22, 2013

The luring voice of a simple way out:

A life discourse free of worry and doubt.

an opiate, a rising sedation

steering me around all confrontation,

into a tranquil domestication.

A fear of growing, sluggish, slowing

An ignorance of all that is knowing.

Never contradicting, always flowing.

Lulling me into a heightened numbness

Dulling me into a state of dumbness.

That is the goodly doctors prescription

Or is it just another addiction.

    This is true and unfortunately some people really need this.
    Some would prefer to function as if walking through a fog than not be able to be around the constant stress that can make their world just so unbearable.
    I wish there was a middle ground……but it seems it is all or nothing.
    Great poem.
