Stop! Don’t Do Drugs, Stay Free – Poem

Locked in by this wall
Of addiction and hurt,

Powerless to break free
From the comforting medicated life,

All you ever wanted
Was to toss aside your problems,

Instead you signed up for a life much worse
While struggling with your next overdose,

Haunted by your troubles
Both big and small,

This wall will continue to get bigger
As time passes by,

The struggles will only get harder
With every pill you take,

But you continue telling yourself
That freedom will be tomorrow,

And you’ll remove yourself
From all your pains and sorrows,

You will fall into this pain again
And concoct such a lethal cocktail,

That you finally get your way
Ending the hurt and pain,

Leaving your loved ones hollow
Sad and distraught with shame

Wishing for life they lent a helping hand
While you were totally led astray

You have been locked out
Permanently out of life,

By the life of drug,
The one you embraced to set you free!

Locked in by this wall
Of addiction and hurt,

Powerless to break free
From the comforting medicated life,

All you ever wanted
Was to toss aside your problems,

Instead you signed up for a life much worse
While struggling with your next overdose,

Haunted by your troubles
Both big and small,

This wall will continue to get bigger
As time passes by,

The struggles will only get harder
With every pill you take,

But you continue telling yourself
That freedom will be tomorrow,

And you’ll remove yourself
From all your pains and sorrows,

You will fall into this pain again
And concoct such a legal cocktail,

That you finally get your way
Ending the hurt and pain,

Leaving your loved ones distraught with shame
Wishing for life they lent a helping hand

You have been locked out of life
By the drug life you thought would set you free!
