A Drug User’s Poem.

I destroy homes, I tear families apart, I take your children, and that's just the start.
-
I'm more costly than diamonds, more precious than gold, The sorrow I bring is a sight to behold.
-
If you need me, remember! I'm easily found, I live in schools, the mall, in town and all around
-
I live with the rich; I live with the poor, I live down the street, and maybe next door.
-
I'm made in a lab, but not like the ones you think, I can even be made under anyones kitchen sink.
-
In your child's closet, ever think that your kid would If that scares you to death, well maybe it should.
-
I have many names, but there's one you know best, Heard of "crystal meth", if you did you pass the test.
 -
My power is very awesome; try me and you'll see, But if you do, you really may never ever break free.
-
Try me once, I may let you go with your life's goal, But try me twice, and I guarantee I'll own your soul.
-
When I possess you, you'll steal and to all you'll lie, You do what ever you have to do, just to get high.
-
The crimes you'll commit for my narcotic charms won't be like the scare from the first burglar alarms
-
You'll lie to your mother; you'll steal from your dad, And when you see their tears, you will feel so sad.
-
You'll forget your morals and how you were raised, I'll be your conscience, an teach you my evil ways.
-
I take kids from parents, and parents from kids, I turn people from God, and separate friends.
-
I'll take it all, from you, your looks and your pride, I'll own you and always be with you, right by your side.
-
You'll give up everything - your family, your home, Your friends, your money, then you'll be all alone.
-
I'll take and take, till you have nothing more to give, When I'm finished with you, you'll be lucky to live.
-
If you try me, be warned, this is certainly no game, And If you give me the chance, I'll drive you insane.
-
I'll ravish your body, an control your poor mind....., I will own you completely, your soul will be mine.
-
The nightmares I'll give you while lying in bed, The voices you'll hear, from inside your head.
-
The sweats, shakes, the crazy visions you'll see, I want you to know, these are all gifts from me.
-
But then it's too late, and you'll know in your heart, That you are mine, and we shall never ever part.
-
You shall regret that you tried me, they always do, But may i remind you, you came to me, not I to you.
-
You knew it could happen, you, often were told, Challenging my power, you chose to be too bold.
-
You could have simply said no, and walked away, If you had that day to live over,what would you say?
-
I'll be your master, you will surely be my slave, I'll even go with you, when you go to your grave.
-
Now that you have met me, what will you do? Will you try me or not? I will leave it all up to you.
-
I can bring you more misery than words can tell, Come take my hand, let me lead you to a living hell. -

Author's Name Unknown ~
-
This was written by a young Indian girl who was in jail on drug charges, and was addicted to meth. She wrote this while in jail. And as you will soon read, she fully grasped the horrors of the drug, as she wrote this simple, yet profound poem.
-
She was released from jail, but true to her story, the drug owned her.
They found her dead not long after, with the Needle still in her arm.
