Unnatural


For anything that energizes



For coffee, Starbucks



For Adderall, for Red Bull



To encourage



Incite, wake up, move on



To relax: alcohol, weed, food



For anything that comforts



Please, give me something tangible and fake,



Constant and temporary, available and missing,



Helpful and hurtful



A stimulant, and a depressant



Give me that which is tantalizing,



Promoted and popular, to cure all my thoughts,



To numb and invigorate my mind



Don't let me be real, be natural because then,



Painful thought can seep in and work



Oh stress,



May overtake my mind



Oh after a while the two conflicting energies make it all spin 



And nothing is real and all is confused and my mind feels like a vice,



All is stuck is lost is crazy the real now



Unusual the mindaltering additives create a new normalcy and



I can't, I can't function without it



Give me that fake reality



Normalcy is pain



For survival and success



Please, give me something tangible and fake, constant



And temporary, available and missing, helpful and hurtful



I have to survive
