what price reality

i remember how
my head once full of questions
the who, the where
the why the hell not

the time
before the drugs
to stop my arteries
from clogging

i remember passion
and words which beat
against my mind
demanding to be written

the time
before the happy pills
which save my sanity
and destroy my passion

i remember my reality
where i would lie in wonder
on lawn, alive with life
and watch

the time
of then begins
to whisper through my mind
insistent in reminder

i remember life
released from the deep
chemical embrace
spared the attrition of cure

the time
to live is now
tomorrow is another question
worth remembering to ask
