What Drugs Will Do To You


They will show you
distorted images
of what you can become

The peace and tranquility
you once knew will soon disappear
to make way for madness and a death wish

You'll be left with a head full
of changing faces
with paranoia all around

Drugs are like a Leopard
that can't change it's spots
they will stay the same
but you may just die in pain

The choice is yours

    Great indictment Mr. Walker, with great metaphors to contextualize the horrors of an addictive substance. A message for addicts trapped in the chase of the leopard that eats them (Report) Reply

    Illegal drugs can destroy communities and uproot families. They can put you
    in a trance so high you feel you can't come down or you don't know how to get
    down from it! Stay far away from it and keep it out of your lives. No good
    comes from it. Very inspiring write. (Report) Reply

    Thanks for your comment to my Hangover poem.
    Which echoes your one!
    I've been around long enough to see what drink and drugs can do, it ain't pretty Dave.
    Good poem. (Report) Reply

    Drugs distort perception. All kinds.Some for escape, some for pain, some for fun to escape the boredom.
    Drugs are for the treating of a symptom, physical, mental, social.
    Sometimes it is best to treat the symptom then there is no need for drugs at all. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
