It’s hard being chemically dependent,

Maintaining a good profile…

To cope with the moods descendent

If one’s pills are forgotten a while!

It’s harder being a Christian when

Not being healed implies less faith…

One learns to not mention it,

In certain circles to play it safe.

Mood swings require patience

From friends, associates and wife…

Until one finds efficacious

Treatment to last a life.

Be kind to us who struggle,

Daily needing  legal drugs…

We’d like to please those we snuggle

Without the diffident shrugs!

–Jonathan Caswell
