I Am Meth- Written By Anonymous

Rating: 5.0
My Name: 'Is Meth'
I destroy homes, I tear families apart, take your children, and that's just the start.
I'm more costly than diamonds, more precious than gold,
The sorrow I bring is a sight to behold.
If you need me, remember I'm easily found,

I live all around you - in schools and in town
I live with the rich; I live with the poor,
I live down the street, and maybe next door.
I'm made in a lab, but not like you think,
I can be made under the kitchen sink.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
I found this poem on a website and it touched me. The author's name was not given but the story behind it was. According to the website, This poem was written by a young Indian girl who was in jail for drug charges, and was addicted to meth. She wrote this while in jail. As you will soon read, she fully grasped the horrors of the drug, as she tells in this simple, yet profound poem. She was released from jail, but, true to her story, the drug owned her. They found her dead not long after, with the needle still in her arm.

A very powerful poem, one which too many will miss, ignore, or even laugh at. It is no laughing matter, I have seen some owned by their addiction (thankfully never meth) , they are all dead now. I have added this to my favorite poems list. Darla (usually I put a smile face here but this time) : (

i read the poet's note before the poem. i assumed the poem dealt with methamphetamine, the drug, which i have only heard about (i mean i never used it or any of that stuff) . i thought meth.... was a pill, so i googled meth injection and was very surprised to see meth injection kits advertised for hundreds of dollars. upon further study i discovered that the kits were for injecting methanol (the engine fuel) , into engines i guess. stupid me! on to the poem.
