Rehab: A poem about insanity by Benjamin Beauchman

New Here? Follow me on Instagram and youtube for motivation and voiceovers of my poems and essays!


Gather here

Remove your guilt

Take some notes

Release your Shame

All the blame

We’ll show you the light

How bright

You shine

Under the fluorescent light

Cut wide open

Tortured by yourself

Blackened lungs inhale the cold air

Late winter nights

Daunted by your dreams

Nightmares seeping through the cracks of reality

Grant me the serenity

Just let me escape

Accept the things I cannot change

Hoping on an overdose

The courage

The torture

Expose my blackened heart

Rip it apart piece by piece

Prepare my final meal

Everything was okay

That’s just what I say


Welcome to my mind, make yourself comfortable.

I write words that make you think

The best way to support me is by staying updated
