The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths.

Could you tell me what is real?
It is either the joy or the pain I feel,
and I am starting to think the darker side
is the true end of the deal.
I am only stable when these pills are able
to invade my mind to make me fine,
but at other times I am crossing the line
because I am so willing to destroy what is mine,
and that is only when there are no chemicals
drowning and diluting my head.
When this happens I am
begging and pleading to shred
the life I have created
for myself so far.
These supposed helpers I am swallowing
are made to stop me from hallowing
out my body’s worth.
It is just a problem they missed
at the time of my birth,
the one that I have where
my soul is always singing a suicidal song,
and my ears get exhausted from hearing it all day long.
My doctors insist
that my self-destructive tick has got to quit
because I am getting so fed up with
this daily bullshit.
They say it will if I just take my pills,
but I feel like their poison is enough to kill.
Those doctors and their books on the shelf
say that if anything is a threat
it is me to myself.
