It’s a strong word, full of meaning
Over used and so clichéd just as love is
To say it, you should mean it
Don’t take it for granted
I don’t hate you, I dislike you
But each day, the line between, is getting smaller and smaller
I looked up to you, I talked to you,
You were my friend, my big brother.
But that’s all changed
It started off as once, which grew to twice
Out with your friends, having a good time
Not a big deal, not a problem at all
It grew to a habit, to a money consuming addiction
Your grade started slipping, which lead to failing
Now you’re kicked out, and need another semester
You lost your job, and maybe your future
You take lunch money, Christmas money, now probably birthday
Spend it on your stupid addiction.
You make excuses, blame it on them.
You say it makes you feel better
But you’re just making things worse
Wake up and see what you’re really doing
Not only to me, but the rest of your family
Stop making excuses, it’s getting old
Smarten up and see what the drugs are doing to you
I don’t hate you, I hate your addiction.
