Don’t tell me to take anxiety/panic pills,

I rather get on my knees and cry,

I’ll continue to overcome without pills,

I’ll release my negative emotions while I cry,

My tears helped me and not pills.


Why did my tears help me?

Crying helped me release my stress,

While I was alone it was my tears that helped me,

I cried out for help while releasing the stress,

So don’t you dare tell me pills are what is best for me.


No, I don’t want a temporary fix,

I want a permanent fix,

Pills are a temporary fix,

Learning to change my thinking is my permanent fix,

Little by little I’ll change my thinking because I choose the permanent fix.
