An addict's life

by samimsalem

It's like you've never left addiction . They expect you to be perfection .

The way your friends act around you when they surround you . Makes you feel you've never been sober .

And that it's making you fall over. It's seducing you , you are diving in it

Slowly absorbing it again . This time you're gonna feel the pain .

You're gonna feel the goodness drain . If you don't control yourself you'll open the chain .

That you put on your self to never make it see light again . It's gonna poison your brain .

Don't submit to its power over you . Hold yourself and don't be the disappointment they see you as .

That sensation when you feel like you are laying on grass . Looking at the sky that's full of clouds .

Thinking about life and what if it was . Remembering your past and what mistakes you made .

Like a wise man once said , Don't keep thinking about the past Or you'll hit the future's wall .

@samimsalem thank you. Sadly she will be paying for it for a while, her children were taken and it was just a mess. She is much better now and has three jobs and leaving in a house. :)

You wrote a great forensic poem concerning addiction. The rhyming scheme was interesting and not overdone. Great choice of words.

@samimsalem I can't say that I know what your going through, but my sister was a addict for five years to meth, so I have the general understanding. But beware, because things in this world will tempt you, try and make you fall back into that dark place, you once were. So stay smart, stay focused. But most of all be happy :)

@samimsalem It's not the mistakes we've made, but how we correct those mistakes, is what defines us . Great job, keep up the great work.
