Horse tranquilizers

By Lynn Reeves aka nova christeen 

At times so high I could run a marathon 
Or so low I could drown in a puddle 
Marathon ha
My body wouldn’t allow me too
Broken cartilage and overweight
Painting and art is now my thing
My mind 19 while my body is 46
After children and marriage 
Your never the same
Especially when doctor’s
Prescribed medication similar to
Horse tranquilizers.

The poem is about my bipolar and schitzo-effective disorder and my medication.
