RX for Life

A truth I've come to understand The pill I hold within my hand Will not solve problems of my making Do not have answers I've been seeking As my fingers reach for pills for sleeping Followed by a pill for keeping Fit and trim, calm and slim Happy, giddy, strong and witty The answers from a capsule's powder Will never change my troubles borrowed Will not give me the magic powers For peace of mind, the acts of kindness I can't ordain such magic potions I should only seek "Divine" solutions ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ For Russell Sivey's Contest: Pills of Life 2//13/13

    Congrats again dear friend...Must admit that I take a pill for every ill too ...Got a wierd little slant on drug addiction...Why take them and screw up your life when you're young?... Wait to you're OLD, feeble and in a wheelchair, then who cares?...Smoke it, drink it, snort it...well deserved for the many years of dealing with this crazy old world...just kidding of course (or am I?) - Tim
