When the prescription runs out, it’s time for self medication
Dreadful intoxications that cause harsh hallucinations
The simplest things you will approach with hesitation
And your daily inebriation can lead to your austere desolation
Your trembling reservations soothed by sharp elevations
And your continuous degradations cause your heart palpitations.
Far from standard, come the immense deviations
From our fate,
A broken heart sent into a bradycardial state
Life has its highs and lows, just as your heartbeat slows
Slows to a crawl and you crawl to the finish line
You just want the pain to end, it’s oh so asinine
You think it’s all for naught but the answers come in time
And you pray they reveal themselves before the flat line
Drink in a gluttonous love and dine in gratuitous hate
The sun prevails outside, but the storm in your mind doesn’t abate
The hatred consumes you as you reach for familiar devices
A world with concealed virtues and evident vices
Packed full of people, hateful and malevolent
Who tote around a “good book” and claim superior benevolence
But who’s the savior of the children with the horrific addictions
Drugs without prescriptions and wrongful convictions
Born into a world integrated by extradition
In truth, segregation fuels their ambition
We fear we what don’t understand/ our worst tradition
We push out what we don’t know, what we don’t want to accept
Call ourselves pure when our hearts are unkempt
Anyone who doesn’t think like us is labeled inept
They pretend to praise differences, but this was a lie
It’s their way or no way. Conform or you die.
