Inside Forces

My attempts at recovery

have proven futile,

the outside forces of life

have made me docile.

Medication that was meant

to help now leaves me sedated

and now I don’t recognise

people to whom I’m related.

The inside forces

have taken control

and they now tell me

what is my role.

Dare I question their authority,

they threaten me with

destitution or even worse

a lengthy spell

in a mental institution.

I just sit with a glazed

look in my eyes,

the vacant stare of a person

who has been hypnotized.

Left in a corner

to wish my life away

and to agree with everything

the inside forces have to say.
