The Pill


A pill to set me free
A pill to make me
Me
A pill to ease my pain
But when the pill is gone
The hurt will start again
A pill to see what is real
A pill to see what is not
A pill to handle what cannot be
But when the pill is gone
The chaos will stand ground
A pill can make me numb
Forget what was and just move on
A pill can make me see
Flowers on the walls
Beauty everywhere
Take the pill away
Then there will be despair

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
