Substance

Will we live our whole lives just hoping that no one will notice what substances we are on?

Fooling only ourselves into believing that there is nothing wrong?

I am old-fashioned; I use only plant-based materials as medicine like caffeine, alcohol, mushrooms, cacti and herbs.

I prescribe pristinely manufactured pills to those who want to smooth out their edges and ills with professional help.

Maybe I am just bitter that I am not privileged enough to partake in prescriptions because I am medically underserved, not brave enough to ask for help, or not self-loving enough to prioritize self-care.

Battle-hardened and road worn, toughing it out like the cowboy I am, I hope that no one notices my coarseness, my panic or manic depression.

On the trail, I blaze.
