A Drug Infested Mind Poem by Dave Alan Walker

A Drug Infested Mind

Rating: 4.7

A lonely baby cries
as her single mother
tries to open her eyes

A drug infested mind
not allowing her to hear
her baby cry

She keeps telling everyone
everything is fine
so she can keep
living the lie
and living the life

Until she opens her eyes
a lonely baby still cries

Heartfelt and true. Drugs and alcohol numb our hearts and souls and we become unresponsive and uncaring.

Well written i have seen through the eyes of the child who cries and must say I love it Describes the moment that lead up to my poem no memories no pictures Until she opens her eyes a lonely baby still cries

Thought provoking poem. Remember though, all babies cry and it does not necessarily mean that they are lonely nor drug infested. All babies cry.

A drug infested mind not allowing her to hear her baby cry.....so touching. Drug must be restricted. It can spoil the life. You have so touchingly captured it in this poem. Thank you dear Dave.10

Drugs don't just block out the pain they also block out humanity.

Absolutely beautiful and charmingly realistic. Desperate mother knows deep down but outwardly is eaten away.

How very sad...she keeps telling everyone everything is fine, has a drug-infested mind, and a lonely baby still cries...a poignant poem indeed...
