We have to take our solace where we can find it, but.

I recommend art—including literature and poetry—music and nature

Over drugs, sex and alcohol.

If you have been lost in the latter,

Poke around in the former.

See if you can find something there

That comes upon you as a blessing and a grace,

Soothing your soul,

Healing old wounds

And helping you avoid new ones.

If your life isn’t working as is,

Look at where you are spending your money,

And where you are spending your time.

See how much is being spent

In the areas of art, music and nature,

And up the ante.
