Your Chemical Embrace by Anonymous

I keep digging
But just getting deeper
I keep climbing
But the mountain gets steeper
And I question myself
Every single day

Can’t find solace
In things I used to love
Can’t deal with
Daily push and shove
Like I’m below ground
Frightened of what’s above

Didn’t know I was in trouble
When I fell into
Your chemical embrace
But now I can see
When is all said and done
You’re a chemical disgrace

Diagnosis made me lost
Treatment made me sick
And I’ve only got myself to blame
You played your mind trick
Now all I feel is shame
Every single day

I’m dependent, lost and confused
The world turns but I am still
Lost the fight, lost the will
I’m as empty and hollow
As the promises
You made to me

Didn’t know I was in trouble
When I fell into
Your chemical embrace
But now I can see
When is all said and done
You’re a chemical disgrace

Haven’t even got the strength
To be angry anymore
Feel so hollow
Deep in my core
You’re not a chemical solution
But a toxic execution

MITUK’s mission is to serve as a catalyst for fundamentally re-thinking theory and practice in the field of mental health in the UK, and promoting positive change. We believe that the current diagnostically-based paradigm of care has comprehensively failed, and that the future lies in non-medical alternatives which explicitly acknowledge the causal role of social and relational conflicts, abuses, adversities and injustices.
