Here take another pill,
they say it make you feel better.
Forget about the side effects,
they don't matter.
The remedy is worst than the disease.
There's no such thing as cure.
Just these prescribed drugs
and the list keeps getting longer.
Never mind what your eating.
Never mind your environment.
Keep writing on those notepads;
gimme, gimme more.
I need some more,
can't take the pain.
I wanna be numb.

Your poem rhymes well. There is a lot of sadness in it. I hope the last two lines will one day come true.
