ALCOHOL, DRUGS, SEX and other anesthetics

When 'Eve' asked 'Adam' "Why am I?"
Humanity became aware
Of self, of others and the void;
And learned we didn't have to care.
Since then we've tried in diverse ways
To fill the void the question leaves.
Among them we continue to
Diminish our capacities
With alcohol and drugs and sex
And other ways to numb our mind
So if we ask the "why?" of life
The emptiness we cannot find.
Some say it shouldn't be a crime.
But since we live collectively,
Decreasing them we should think is                                
A crime against humanity.

The other ways are also crimes.
One can't be used to solve the rest.
Our only hope for crime free lives,
Discard them all to leave what's best.
It's reaching to the limits of
Inherited capacities,
To others, and to Nature's God,
The only way that we can ease
The common burden that we share
With needed maximum success.
This natural activity
Can ease the pain of emptiness.
