Half a human is what I am
As I lie in bed. Devoid
Of my blessed medicine.
Casually I had considered it
An annoying intruder,
Its bitter pills or sharp needles.
The constant vigilance.
An overpowering damper
On sparkling emotions
But whilst it ran me ragged
It was all keeping me alive
Allowing me freedom
Allowing me to revel
In the pulsating energy of life
But the pill box is empty today
And I want to feel life
Course through my fingertips,
Sweep through my hair.
Tomorrow when my stock is replenished,
I will thank God that I only had to suffer a day,
Instead of having to survive on tidbits of care that fell in my way.

Oh, that’d be tough, huh?
Uh huh, we should be grateful for all the medical advancements made so far and our easy access to them, even if there is more to be made.
It is really quite amazing. But don’t you think medicine can be scary?
Oh yes definitely. We have all heard of scary stories and companies flooding the markets with pills and unnecessary products but there are of course essential medicines for long term health conditions that give people a chance to live a normal life.
Beautiful writing, I can relate completely
Thank you 🙂
Agreed, Mike, this is beautifully written. Our meds of today would have helped millions to survive what we now consider minor difficulties. Praise God for doctors and medical research. TAke your meds!
Thank you 🙂 Yup definitely!
