Addiction


How I loath your presence
in this world
destroying the beauty
that once was
stealing the bliss
and sweet innocence of childhood
capturing you in the
poisonous drip of addiction,
taking with you
a once happy family
and leaving behind destruction
and a chaotic mess
with no regards for the aftermath
of your careless choices,
forcing your physically and emotionally
distraught children
to cope with issues
they can not begin to comprehend
thrusting them into premature adulthood
your poisonous tornado
is destroying everything in its path
leaving the most innocent to suffer
the consequences of another's addiction

    So true that the addict doesn't realize how affected their loved ones are by their diseased decisions to fall prey to a most venomous demon. I wish for those who suffer from addiction, the strength of self respect that somehow overpowers the evil that will most certainly cause their demise....as well as the demos if a happy family...who truly innocently have to suffer along. Your write will speak to many....I hope they listen well. PEACE (Report) Reply
