Title: The Sacrifice
Author: Jesse White

Poem: I take a pill to keep me sane, to smooth my moods,
to fix my brain, but now I feel awfully plain, is this the price, to halt the pain?
The medication keeps me balanced, but those moods were used, to fuel my talents, without the ups, the hopeless lows, the flow's dried up, where did it go?
To spiral down, and drown my health, or balance out, but lose myself? And this pill is smothering my feelings, but hey, I'm recovering, though life has lost it's coloring, I guess now I'm the "normal" me, I'll pay the price for normalcy......
