A Drug Infested Mind


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. (Report) Reply

    I have seen people close to me die from drugs and know only too well the horror it inflicts on the world. You have caught the cry in the night of the innocent victim. Painfully accurate.
    I wrote about drugs some time ago, the poem was called Tracks. (Report) Reply
