Elena Plotkin Poems
I Am Meth- Written By Anonymous
My Name: 'Is Meth'
I destroy homes, I tear families apart, take your children, and that's just the start.
I'm more costly than diamonds, more precious than gold,
The sorrow I bring is a sight to behold.
If you need me, remember I'm easily found,
I live all around you - in schools and in town
I live with the rich; I live with the poor,
I live down the street, and maybe next door.
I'm made in a lab, but not like you think,
I can be made under the kitchen sink.
In your child's closet, and even in the woods,
If this scares you to death, well it ...
To be loved by someone other than family,
To be treasured by someone other than friends,
To be respected by someone other than colleagues,
Is to be regarded with envy by both women and men.
