Drowning in a sea of pills
Testing their performance
Keep from slipping off downhill
Accept this circumstance
Jump right back in to the fray
Expect reaction no delay

Balance, it’s the new mantra
Balance, the new prayer
Balance, control the anger
Balance, and repair

Prick the finger with the lance
Note the boundary readings
Can’t afford to leave to chance
Cauterise the bleeding
Measured dose but mind the gap
Navigate the hidden traps

Before it was watching from the sidelines
Before it was mainly sympathy
Before it was waiting for the punch line
But that’s before it affected me
