Slowly But Surely (A.K.A. Theres A Pill For That) - Poem by Cameron Brooks

Everyday is the same thing
We wake up and get ready
Hop in the shower and sing
Starting off the day steady

Like a list of things to do
We go day by day
Waiting for the week to be through
With never anything new to say

Each night after a wasted day feeling ill
If we cry or get angry
Theres a pill
Pills pills and more pills
No one understanding our true self
Trying to fix us
Untill we are stuck crying alone
Slowly but Surely
They've created another drone.
