The Reach

by good2begone

Pharmaceutical happiness
Chemically enhanced joy
All easily accessible when
Life starts to annoy.

End of work day liquids
Sticks that turn to smoke
Ahh…that’s what was needed
My senses….they are awoke.

Injections for beauty
Pulls that skin tight
Outer appearances are important
The insides are a fright.

Can’t eat too much
To overindulge makes a sinner
Purge out the excess
The mantra is…….thinner.

Rehabs and support groups
Will toss a life line
Hard to ask for help
When the belief is…You’re fine.

Experiments in youth
Blossom to reliance with age
Reach out for the line
It starts with a change.
