The helpful poison

A pill to make me happy
All it does is trap me
A pill to keep me calm
And yet it causes much harm

The helpful poison before bed
The cause of the noise in my head
To poison the brain is to leave them dead

A pill for my anxietyĀ 
Why not fix society
A pill for my depressionĀ 
Why not make a impression
A pill for my anger
Why not take away the danger

The helpful poison before bed
The cause of the noise in my head
To poison the brain is to leave them dead

This is my story of pain
Taking these pills without any gain
This is my story of lies
Taking these pills I ran out of tries
This is the story of the helpful poison
Taking these pills that leave me frozen

Deep and insightful write. I love the way you showed the duality behind these 'magic pills'

This is the story of the helpful poison
Taking these pills that leave me frozen

Very well-written and expressed!
