Confession Of A remorseful Drug Addict
 

CONFESSION OF A REMORSEFUL DRUG ADDICT



Midnight miseries are all that I can see
As this dark, terrible place encroaches around me
I’m in prison and there is no where to go
And heartaches and miseries are all that I know

My life is wasting away right in front of me
And I feel like a sailor forever lost at sea
I once was a man who had everything that one could ever need
But I lost it all because of greed

Cocaine and other types of narcotic drugs played crucial parts in my demise
Simply because I was young and very much unwise
My life fell apart when I gave in to peer pressure
And started thinking less of life and more of pleasure

I was a fool and started listening to my friends
Ignoring my parents when I was told that it would lead to my untimely end
I craved the head-raising moments it gives
And thought that this was a life fitting to live

I didn’t see the destruction it would bring
Until I lost my family, my friends and everything
Some of my peers decided to give up before it was too late
But not me, I decided to procrastinate.

And of all those who decided to stay with me, I was the lucky one
Somewhere out there in the open world, mothers
and fathers mourn the loss of their sons

Eth I too was on this path to ruin. But I quit both drugs and alcohol cold turkey January 1 1992 and have not touched either one since. I am thankful to be alive for they almost killed me too. 16+ years clean and sober today. May God give you the strength to keep on doing what is good.

Ethommo, if indeed this poem is about you, thank the Lord - for by His grace, you are saved! Only those of us who has experienced the torture and the pain of drug/alcohol abuse that we chose so to put upon ourselves can understand what this poem means, to be clean and in a place in our lives where we can reflect back on it and thank God that we're still alive! God still has plans for our lives!
