Cooked "Crack Cocaine
  

COOKED “CRACK” COCAINE

 

I woke up depressed one day

I decided I’d do some drugs

I had very low self-esteem

I had no self-love

That day lasted for

Two long years of my life and

Every single moment of it was

Filled with absolute strife

During one of those drug induced moments

I cried and then I made a very calm decision

I told myself to commit suicide

I got myself a bag of weed, a bottle of whiskey and

I bought some cooked - crack cocaine.

I told myself that I no longer wanted to live

I felt like I had totally gone insane

I awakened weeks later out of a coma

In the hospital psychiatric ward.

For me I know that it was only by the

Grace of our wonderful forgiving Lord!

That moment made me see

The error of my ways and

I’ve been drug-free now

Twelve years, six months and a few days

God made me realize that

My life was not mine to take

I implore you please listen to me

This is for your own sake!

Life as we know it doesn’t last very long

So each day that we’re allowed to breath

We’ve got to be strong

Strong enough to always have hope and

Strong enough to forever say “No” to dope!

I once again commend you on beating this devil. I had to do battle like this and like yourself, fought against hell to win. Will be 17 years on Jan 1, 2009 clean and sober. Congrats to you and may God bless you always!

Strong powerful message that many need to heed. This is pure power with words and from a first person perspective. No sugar coating of the reality, just real talk. Keep pumping knowledge and many will be set free.
