A Poem To An Addict

Do you see what I see when I look at you? Wish you would, wish you could.

Do see your heavenly potential? can you see what you could be?

Do you see the eagle, the lion, the warrior, that God or Goddess that you are meant to be?.

Do you see the beautiful soul that you are? Wish you would, wish you could.

DO YOU SEE WHAT I SEE WHEN I LOOK AT YOU???MY FRIEND MY BROTHER, MY SISTER, MY MOTHER, MY FATHER, MY NEIGHBOR, MY HUSBAND, MY LOVER.

I don't think you do. I don't think you can. Wish you would, wish you could.

You are blinded--remove the dirt from your body so your eyes may see clearly, so the SUN may Shine through the fog in your vision.

Run away from the devil when it calls your name.

Lock yourself-up if you must, but just don't give in...run, run, run.

Loose Your self in sleep, rest your soul.

Close your eyes, your ears, your mind--Do not listen...sleep, sleep, sleep.

That friend who calls in the middle of the night, in the wee hours of the morning...all hours of the day. Do not answer, Do NOT ANSWER, DO NOT.

Let the cell phone ring and ring and ring-- better yet Don't touch it, Don't TOUCH IT, DON'T TOUCH IT!!!

Throw it AWAY, throw it away--throw it AWAY, throw it, throw it, THROW IT!

That friend, My FRIEND HAS NEVER BEEN A REAL FRIEND... it is only Satan's henchmen calling you to shame, it is death in a pretty disguise...DEATH, DEATH, DEATH.

The happiness YOU THINK it brings you is NOTHING MORE than a unaffordable DELUSION.

The more that you do it, the quicker it leaves you... Soon not worth the price you'll end-up paying.

Lock yourself up if you must. Lock yourself up if you must. Lock yourself up.

Don't give in...Don't give up, Don't give up, DON'T GIVE UP.

run, run, RUN, sleep , sleep, sleep.

WAKE-UP!! WAKE-UP!! WAKE-UP!!!

CLEAN yourself now, wash- up. CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN.

look in the mirror and see what I see, SEE WHAT I SEE, SEE WHAT I SEE.

the beautiful soul that you are, all that you could be. ..the eagle, the lion, the warrior, the God or the Goddess. All that you are meant to be.

YOU CAN, YOU CAN, YOU CAN

YOU CAN BE FREE

FREE, CLEAN, AND SOBER, YOU CAN, YOU CAN, YOU CAN BE.

Can you see now, what I see?

DO YOU SEE WHAT I SEE WHEN I LOOK AT YOU...WISH YOU WOULD,WISH YOU COULD.

LEAVE THE DARK

LEAVE THE DARK...SEE THE LIGHT

A CALL TO ARMS AGAINST DRUG ADDICTION

We all know there is an epidemic in America. A war that we are loosing right here within our own land. it is called drug use--RAMPANT ADDICTION. IT IS SLAVERY really. It is taking prisoners one by one, rich or poor, black or white, educated and uneducated--it is taking them

all.

The worst in my view is METH. I'VE HEARD it called Satan's drug and I believe it to be true.

It makes the bad look so good and the good look so bad. It turns people into monsters, into Jeckel and Hides...you love the one completely and hate the other just as much.

It is destroying families, one by one we fall. We look for help, but it is hard to find. We spend money on warheads and droids while one by one we fall.

WE FAIL AS FAMILIES, WE FAIL AS A NATION, but who will help us win this war!?

Addiction Is real, It is everywhere. If you think drugs are in the slums, the bad neighborhoods. Think again...take a walk around your neighborhood, two or three blocks and there's probably a dealer maybe even two living right there around your corner.

Most likely the cops even know him or her--they may even be friends.

No one can truly run from them, they are everywhere. There is a network and they protect eachother even to the point of hurting their own families to protect each other.

It is truly is an epidemic.

Mr. president, whitehouse, polititians wake up!! You are fighting the wrong war .

Help the people who can't help themselves. Make a law to declare drug addicts incompetent to make their own decisions and allowing wife's husbands, father's, mother's the legal means to commit them into rehab. How can a blind person, take themselves into rehab??

Enough with the fat paychecks to politicians. make rehab programs more attainable to families.

I also believe Hollywood to be made accountable... nearly every movie has drug use , alcohol or pot and it is glamorized! It's funny, and taken lightly. Any addict in recovery will fail surrounded by so many reminders or TRIGGERS. THERE IS HARDLY ONE MOVIE THAT DOESN'T INCLUDE SOME SORT OF DRUG USE, ALCOHOL, OR SMOKING. Don't believe me? try to find one and let me know.

Hollywood be responsible and accountable remove the crap from the movies.. We must do something now lest we all fail each other.

Parents be parents!!! make it clear to your children that there is poison everywhere and they must not taste it lest they should die.

Do not be afraid to smell their breath, their clothes, their friends. Do not be afraid to ask them and tell them each and every time they go out the door what you expect from them and that you will check on them. IT IS YOUR JOB!!
