It’s hard being chemically dependent,
Maintaining a good profile…
To cope with the moods descendent
If one’s pills are forgotten a while!
It’s harder being a Christian when
Not being healed implies less faith…
One learns to not mention it,
In certain circles to play it safe.
Mood swings require patience
From friends, associates and wife…
Until one finds efficacious
Treatment to last a life.
Be kind to us who struggle,
Daily needing legal drugs…
We’d like to please those we snuggle
Without the diffident shrugs!
