A Poem: Beaten

You know the disease
Has you beaten
When you’re just
Looking forward to sleep.


Many times I look forward to taking my meds :disappointed:

Hey dude I recited your poem, ‘Today’ to my mother and she said: ‘That’s REALLY funny’. I wish you could see her face bc it helped bring levity to an argument!at the time.

if only schizophrenia was beaten,
by the love and care,
then maybe id find,
my lifes unhappyness.
were i lost it, disappear.


BTDT. 6 months later I got clean. And that led to a job, school, and eventually a car and a host of good things and good times. The symptoms didn’t go away but became more tolerable.

Years later my moms death led me to being hospitalized, having to take 2 months off work, had to quit school. And during all this, I had serious back problems and could barely walk. It took me awhile but I got back on track.
Like James Bond says, “Beaten, but not stirred.” I was down and out but now I’m better and just kind of cruising til I figure out what I want to do. Not beaten for good or forever.


I solved schizophrenia.
