Chosen To Be Permanently Afflicted
The ones who have adapted to adjust to denial,
With a doing of it comfortably to accept...
For the rest of their lives,
Always seem to be those incapable...
To stop making excuses for everything done,
To have others believe with a showing to them proof,
They have been chosen to be permanently afflicted.
With either something physical or mental,
They have with a prescribed medication...
Ensuring to keep them addicted,
That a licensed doctor who is certified and they see,
On a regular basis with kept appointments...
Who has diagnosed with their recommendations,
To keep their doses validated regardless...
Of who says what about home remedies.
And cost effective cures that will eliminate their fees.
If I were you,
I would do more exercise and try a change of diet.
You would look and feel a whole lot better if you did.
Just by changing your outlook.
That's all it takes.
Instead of accepting your dilemma.
And paying to remain sick.'
~And your medical degree has been earned from 'where'? ~
