Feel down, take a pill! The doctor's promise of a happy ending!

Updated on June 28, 2011

Take a magic pill. It heals all doesn't it?

Will a pill really help your depression or just mask the problem?

Have I taken enough pills to dull the pain?

Have I taken enough for you to say I am sane?

Is it really the pills I need for my head,

or for you to leave and stop hurting me instead?

I wish these pills were a magic dose,

and you and I were still so close.

But life is cruel and tore us apart and now I don't know,

I don't know what's in my heart.

My head and heart are like a garage sale, full of junk,

it weighs me down. I am sunk!

Every time I go to walk out the door,

I know I could go and feel alive once more,

but can I do it with out you by my side?

What is wrong with the world,

those fairy tales lied!

I lie on my pillow with this stuff in my head,

if it wasn't for the children, I would want to be dead.

    Thank you for your supportive comment. Depression is a very hard issue to resolve as no one thing works for two people.

    A happy pill is only temporary and it is not to be taken forever; especially if someone is going through depression. Thanks well written article.

    Thank you for reading James. I love the new fact that you have left me.

    That is exactly how it feels being on anti depressants. You fitting in to others idea of life, rather than life fitting you.

    Interesting poem. Aldous Huxley predicted the control of future generations in 1952: "It seems to me perfectly in the cards that there will be within the next generation or so a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude."

    Thank you Rachel. I too am on medication but some times people are quick to lay blame with " Oh it will be your depression" as a cure all and excuse for everything that upsets you. Even when anyone else would be annoyed.

    Thank you for reading and my wishes to your mum.x

    I really like this, thank you for writing it! I know that sometimes anti-depressants are good and needed, but probably not in the ammounts that they're given out. My mom suffered from post-pardum (sp?) for 10 years, and going on Zoloft for a few months helped her body to even out so that she was a lot more steady.

    Yes I don't like the Med world of America. Hope someday that things will change in our society. Nice hub! :)
