My Happy Pills



Never miss taking my happy pill Keeps me on this joyous path Singing all day, sleeping all night Starting each day with a laugh Never agreed with taking medication Not needed for us to survive But with all the stuff we have to endure A little help is needed to get by Non-addictive, it's only to remind us Small things aren't important to life Things that are basically non life threatening Ignoring them eliminates strife At times it's difficult to remember those days A much calmer life with less stress Hard to get along without a wee bit of help It could be better, must confess Really though, you're all my happy pills And I mean that in the nicest way Feel so alive you stimulate my senses Look forward to our chats every day © Jack Ellison 2013

    I really believe you were taking happy pills. I too don't like medication, but I was ready to cut a deal with you, so I could get some from you. Great poem and thanks for sharing and liking my Avatar. That's my new life pic... Lucilla
