A True Poem About Drugs

I know a girl
who jumped out of a window
because she couldn't
have a fix

She broke her back
and her dignity
Lost her kids
and her dealers run away

I know a girl
who told everyone she was rich
so they would lend her a fix

They'll be calling
for their money today
I bet there's nobody there

She'll be somewhere else
giving someone else
her despair

    drugs are the death of the soul... take it from one who knows! great poem.

    Strong message.
    Sad that still in the 21 century we have been unable to do away with dealers.
    Too much money involved. Those who are supposed to do away with dealers likely take their share and fail the community and allow the continued (indirect) killing of our youngsters. We can find Osama but allow pushers in the schools of our children. We need a kindness revolution.
