The Bitter Pill

The Bitter Pill
Disregard me if you will
For I am quite a bitter pill
But if you’re brave enough to eat
You’ll find you’ve had more than your fill
I don’t taste sweet, I don’t bring cheer
I’m not fine wine or premium beer
I hide in shadows with watchful eyes
Then come to light, provoking fear
But please don’t get me wrong, dear friend
My sights are not foreseeing your end
Intent on helping every day
I only have advice to lend
So listen with calm and open heart
The taste seems ill and terribly tart
Yet only truth is what you’ll get
So swallow the pill, and life can start
