Tomorrow Is Today

Is such a poem near or far

Are such words laid out like the stars

When you breathe do you choke on the choices you make

Is it life for granted with those drugs that you take

Sniffing and snorting, while you’re father is asleep

Fallen into heaven, making unnatural leaps

Oxycontin is the medicine, a pill in powdered form

Calm is the outcome, then drowning in a storm

As you lie awake, you itch from yesterday

Scratching weathered skin, now burning and blistering

Your scars, you cannot hide, not even without mirrors

You write thoughts of suicide, your own words you now fear

Tomorrow you will stop, you say this everyday

Tomorrow has now come, tomorrow is today
