No I'm not back here with words of sorrow,

No I'm not here with the worry about tomorrow,

I'm here with some advice that even the wise could borrow,

Some pills might be harder than the others to swallow,


You feel pain till the point where you can't anymore,

You'll feel horrible till it but next second, you won't bother about what's in store,

You'll feel indifference radiating out of your periphery and core,

You'll have no sadness, but you won't find happiness more,


Anyone in that position, I'm with you, go ahead,

You can't be too happy but neither with anger can you go red,

You won't have any ego that needs to be fed,

Your heart would no more feel heavy like lead,


Here's what'll happen instead,

You'll have a light feeling in your head,

You'll have hope in your tied with metal cords and not a thread,

That's enough to recognize it, remember whatever I've said,


You might feel things going really bland,

You might feel you no longer feel anything and,

Nothing matters that's not in your hand,

The last one holds true, the rest can be buried later in sand,


I don't know the solution, but I'm writing this to tell you,

You're not alone but this situation arises for few,

Trust me, it's not all black and white, soon you'll see hue,

And you'll have a life that feels fresh and brand new
