It's Time To Act! - Poem by Meriam Joseph

Drugs, drugs, drugs,
What do you get?
More than harm is its effect,
Oh! What a dangerous quest.

It’s time to act,
Get up fight for it,
Can’t let people lose their lives,
Can’t let them take the wrong side.

Use it one time,
And you want it again,
You’ll murder, you’ll kill
You’ll do anything it takes,

The game of murder it’s called,
Yes, it’s a dangerous game,
It’s not good for your body,
Nor for your soul because it just fades away.

    I love the danger framed by the last line. The soul just fades away
    What else of value is there to lose Meriam. That has to be the vision that
    would be so frightening to see..... A persons soul just has had enough,
    And gets up and slowing starts walking toward the door........ That a vision
    you have painted..... This one could really be a great one..... Plant that vision
    thousands of times....millions of times..... Great one......Jim Troy
