Happily Medicated - Poem by Elizabeth Forrest

Blue, white, orange and green
these pills I take behind the scenes
changing all the chemicals that cycle through my mind
showing me the happiness that for so long I was blind

The sadness has released me from its cold & desolate place
melting the angry expressions that used to warp & twist my face
The rain clouds have departed letting the sun shine brightly through
the broken pieces held together with this powerful rainbow of glue

The calmness that I feel throughout each one of my days
contributes to my happiness in many many ways
thoughts no longer racing at 1000 miles per hour
gives me such a feeling of clarity and exhilerating power

Everyday I wake up smiling and happy to be here
not plagued with paranoia and directionless fear
free from the depression that once consumed my life
throwing out my razorblades and putting away my knife

I've learned different ways to cope with the minor stress we all feel
no more blowing up like an idiot making up stories that are unreal
no more cutting on my body to bleed out my emotions
thanks to Ami's psychotherapy and Dr. Karoll's magic potion
