I'm sick of the pills
and I'm sure they're sick of me,

but why resist when it's easier to swallow?

About this Bitlet

~This is my mantra, this is my pill. This is a contra-diction within itself~ I came up with the last line about five years ago and have never found a written piece to fit it into, so well, it found a place here. But in all seriousness, this depressing phrase is what keeps me taking my antidepressants. Irony's my *****. This piece may need revision though, it's a little too simple and plain for the subject matter in my opinion.

Bitlets are about quantity, not quality. Free-write at least one a day about what is on your mind, going on around you, or the state of your life. Ignore the urge to edit; it's not about being profound on purpose, it's about stumbling on it by accident.

Really clever word play here.

This is really good. Short and powerful, I love pieces like this.

I think it's really well done, sometimes less is more. Keeps you wondering. And hits closer too home.

Once again, really well done!
