Why Be Afraid - Poem by William F Glennon

Why not drink till you forget.
Take pills and smoke your cigarettes.
Who cares about the games people play?
Don't believe in tomorrow. Just believe in today.

Hope fades with lifeless addictions.
You've become a ghost of your own contradictions.

There is nothing more to figure out.
Just take away the pain and all your doubts.

Blinded by the pain in every one's eyes.
If you no longer hear the cries.
You will finally understand why.

Your will is not strong.
All the reasons might be wrong.
You don't belong. Why be afraid?
When you can always leave this masquerade.
