Addicts


To young to die,
To old to get sober,
Their addictions have taken over,
Cutting an drinking,
No longer thinking,
Losing what means the most,
There doors have finally closed,
Lost in there addiction,
While we all cry,
We all ask the same question; why? ,
To lost in their addiction to realize what they've done
To far away to stop the gun
To young to die but it's all over,
She pulled the trigger her life, It's over,
He's to far gone to ever get sober,
It's too late it's all over,
He drank his last bottle,
He got his last high,
Yesterday is gone its time to say goodbye...

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
