“Mind Power”

THIS WAS WRITTEN FOR A LOVED ONE WHO I HAD TO WATCH AS HE TOOK A DOWNFALL PATH OF AN ADDICTION TO PAIN MEDICATION:

All of that consuming power,

Packed into one little pill,

Your mind becomes devoured,

And you are taken against your will.

At first it does not seem so bad,

You enjoy the relief it gives,

The pain that you once had,

Is no longer felt or lives.

Over time you start to ache again,

You begin to take more powerful pills,

Yet, that familiar feeling doesn’t come to an end,

It all seems to stand very still.

Now, here you are, relying on this drug,

Even though it is no longer assisting,

You don’t even see the concern in your beloved,

You are now mindless and begin resisting.

Blindness takes over your feelings,

Only the anger decides to remain,

You were once a very different being,

In such a beautiful way.

But there is still someone who believes highly in you,

And who knows you can overcome,

You can rise above and make it through,

Because you have the strength… more than some.

    Pain killers.
    #1 reason doctors should be scrutinized,for failing to monitor closely the outcome of individual results,not the labels printed out regarding warnings of side effects.
    If this is an ongoing situation,I hope it gets better,soon.

    • I live in Florida, which is pretty much a “pill mill”. Doctors couldn’t care less about what happens to families and their patients. All they care about is the size of their wallets. This was written about my husband, who unfortunately passed away this past June. It wasn’t from an overdose, though. He had knee surgery and ended up passing away from a pulmonary embolism. The blood clot started in the leg he had surgery on. So that’s what I think caused it. The poem “A Falling Star” that I posted on here was about him.
