Treasure Island

Kevin Fisher

(8/28/90 / Canton, Ohio)


I was nothing more then a drunk, drug abuser who hurt himself
I remember stabbing myself over and over with a needle just for a line of cocaine
I heard voices in my head telling me to hurt myself for drugs
I saw people dieing all around me getting killed by gangs or ODing drugs
I worried I was next
I thought I was going to die young or be selling drugs for a living
But I want to change
I am strong and I broke my addictions on my own
I think the world dragged many people down, me included
I need to change the world, or at least Ohio so the next generation will be safe
I try to stay away from drugs and alcohol
I feel like a new person
I forgive my friends, family, and some teachers for the pain they caused me but I can never forgive myself
Now I can change
I will be the poet I always wanted to be
I choose to stay clean for my future dream
I dream of having a family, two or three kids, a beautiful wife and a house in the country
I hope my dream comes true
I predict I'll be a award winning auther who lived his dream
I know I'll stay clean for my future
I will change.

    that's right you have to change for yourself if no one else...
    you keep your new attitude and i'm sure your dreams will be more in your future.
    best wishes from me.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
