Chemically imbalanced trance

Getting high to beat the lows

Stale marijuana smoke

smears the bedroom walls

of a tennage lost-cause.

Getting high to slow the blow

that our ruminating thoughts throw.

Ignorant to the screams

that our dying souls groan

as we continue down a road

leading anywhere but home.


surely no more will continue past

this lifetime,

it can't last.

As time floats by

through space and our minds

we have yet to let go

of the cannabis chokehold;

Releasing the grasp

of that miracle-producing,

soul-sucking grass.
