God is not Prozac

God is not Prozac

Here’s an approach that

Might make you look back

And ask yourself “How’s that?”

God is not Prozac

He is sufficient and he is proficient

And He knows how to heal you

But in order for him to do that

First he has to feel you

Why would he create you and not care for your mental health?

But in order for you to feel him, first you have to be able to feel yourself

We don’t need to mask our human abilities with medication

Our mind with its feelings wasn’t given to us so we can disguise it

We need to spend more time in prayer and meditation

And try to free our scary skeletons from their hidden closet

We have chemical imbalances due to hormones and emotions

And the toxins we ingest unbalance us even more

We’re lost in pills the size of vast oceans

It’s time we stop skimming the surface and get to the core*

We’re given all this advice but the best is brushed aside

Like mules with blinders trying to plow a straight line

Letting God be our psychiatrist and letting him be our guide

Is the greatest therapy for freeing the mind

We spend countless hours in appointments

But don’t delve to the root of the problem

But continue with our anxiety on the spinning wheel of disappointment

Instead of letting God solve them

I do understand at times there’s a short necessity

Which has been stretched over a lifetime by corruption and greed

I don’t understand it’s just a guess to me

Why we don’t want everyone to be mentally freed

Our solutions are within ourselves in

Our ability to reach out to others and God

Our ability to talk to others and God

Our ability to share ourselves, ALL of ourselves (to the core*) with others and God

Our ability to love ourselves
