Somebody Insignificant


Cutting New Medicine - Poem by Somebody Insignificant

The redness turns to a trail of pale pink
each droplet starts its journey in the bathroom sink
The only medicine that works but it leaves a few scars

I look at the mirror and into the sadness of my eyes
I start to wonder, then start to cry
The only medicine that works but it leaves a few scars

Nobody knows how bad I’ve felt
But I must play the cards I’m dealt
The only medicine that works but it leaves a few scars

But the way I play is not accepted
With all these scars, I’m now more rejected
The only medicine that works but it leaves a few scars

The pleasure and release of anger I feel
a few quick slashes of the cold sharp steel
The only medicine that works but it leaves a few scars

Years of antidepressants and anti-psychotics
Not treating the cause just funding drug company profits
The only medicine that works but it leaves a few scars
