Drugs And Alcohol


I'm an alcoholic, and it's driving me in-Insane
I'm sick of waking up each day
And suffering the pain
Pins and needles, shakes and vomit
Are with me all the time
I keep trying very hard
To kick this habit of mine
I know I've done it once before
I gave the beer a miss
But had another substitute
And that was Billy Wizz
But then I tried to give up that
Then turned straight back to drink
And now I'm hooked on both of them
My brain can hardly think
Most people say they understand
But I don't think they do
It's an awful thing to go through
And I wouldn't wish it on you
Say No to drink, and No to drugs
You be the one who's wise
It took me quite a long time
To finally realise
That I'm an addict, I'm not proud
In-fact I'm quite ashamed
So I'm not gonna sign this poem
I dont wish to be named...

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
