Poison


Van Gogh drank yellow paint.

hoping his life would turn for a happy change

Many thought he would die after drinking toxins

Countless called him crazy for going to such extremes

but are we any different?

Our souls, with harm we are constantly feeding

alcohol, we are using to charm what we are feeling

Cigarettes, we smoke, to help with what we are coping

Despite all the illness associated,

we persist to indulge this way to remain clear headed

Van Gogh was crazy for feeding himself poison

how are we any different having made the same decisions
