Poem - I Know

The poem "I Know" is about the shadow of self-medication.

I Know

I know why people drink
drown the part that only screams

waking dreams are nightmare's kin
voices heard inside the head

why drugs are used to numb the pain
place a haze upon the world

shift awareness to the void
not see the present always there

I know all of these
have practiced them to exist

within this realm, away from life
swimming in the passing bliss.
