inspired by Don’t Wait until Midnight a series of poems I wrote in 2014-2015 in Lovintheasylum.
Don’t Wait Until Midnight Part 4
After drinking the drink,
the machine said with a smile.
There is no right time;
If you wait ‘n’ wait;
your frustration becomes great.
Do you want it to grow ‘n’ mutate?
Becoming plagued by loathing ‘n’ self-hate.
Destroying yourself inside;
Will that help you to flourish ‘n’ survive?
Open up ‘n’ speak your mind;
while you still have time.
