Addiction – David L_Lifeline Feb 2020

Demons come when they want
it’s not a set date or time they can come in the day
or creep up on you at night
It does not matter your background
Blue collar or white
maybe your homeless
or your trying to hide
addictions’ the devil
once you start, it’s a difficult thing to stop
smoking it, eating it, drinking it
or even putting it in a shot
it’s made me lose things
this she didn’t care
the harder I got into it
the harder it was to bear
This has been my life
since the age of nine
I thought I was unstoppable
I thought I was sublime
My life has been difficult
My family knows this to be true
overdoses and institutions
aren’t you glad this isn’t you

by, David L.
