Wishing

Finding solitude in company,

Wishing his life would just,

End,

He had tried once,

He couldn’t even do that right,

He failed, failure,

Eating pills,

Like sweets,

Then a change of heart,

Admission,

Submission,

He didn’t cry for help,

He just cried,

To cure his sickened mind,

They gave him pills,

Pills,

More pills,

When they didn’t work,

More pills,

Pills,

What didn’t kill him,

Now doled out,

The shame of asking for prescriptions,

Pharmacy staff recognise the man,

He stands,

Stares at his feet,

Mumbles,

Then cries,

Helpless,

Hope,

Less
