Our Life.

Our Life.

A Poem by Tinotenda Nyevedzanai
"

poem - atc

"
Reality can be postponed
For priority to be condoned.

- No 
Medicate, Medicate

That seductive, sedative state,

I am sad and lonely
So that makes me "depressed"
What is it I wonder that I'd be treated with next?
More drugs, more diagnonsense, more delusion. 

No I'm not mental make no confusion
Not insane but simply human
I have a place among the people,

Intercept that perception
Because we're all okay
Just wait to fit back
Feel right behind the face.
The difficulty with dreaming
Is that you are never truly Awake
So see straight and take care
in The World because,

an Enjoyable Experience Awaits.

this makes the entire notion of psychoanalysis moot. I refuse to give my psychiatrist another nickel
since, after he takes it, I can hear him and his obnoxious secretary whispering in the next room.
the difficulty with dreaming is that the sweet unsayable things I cant remember when I wake.

"our life", yours and mine.
well done...dana

Thanks for reading :)
I believe we live in states of highs and lows (call it whatever we want) and that unless we are completely chemically imbalanced, keeping our focus on positive things and surrounding ourselves with positive people will help keep us on an even keel. I agree with your diagnosis: we diagnose and medicate way too much.

I really like this poem. It shows how the world can really hold down a person but it also shows how you can overcome that problem. I like the concept and your choice of words;Truly a great write.

A interesting topic in the poem.
"The difficulty with dreaming
Is that you are never truly Awake
So see straight and take care
in The World,
an enjoyable experience awaits,"
I believe big different in dreams and real life. I believe we need dreams to keep us sane. I liked your thoughts and the strong ending. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

You are welcome.
"I am sad and lonely

It's crazy how they cannot allow us to feel any more... everything is diagnosed and there is a drug for it. Good write... love the topic.
