I wrote this for the way the world is today, I have family and friends that have and still are addicts of some kind….#addictions #encouragement #Godiswithyou #wordsflowfreely #poetryforthesoul
I’m damaged, no good, washed up, alone. I’m sinking, drowning, buried in sin.
I lift the glass, love the taste, it takes a hold of me. Light it, smoke it, cloud your head.
The needle stings as it pierces my skin, the liquid inside burns as it courses through my veins.
I feel good for the moment, I’m high as a kite, makes all of my troubles disappear for the night.
I feel my choices by dawn’s early light, I need another fix, I can’t feel it’s too much.
I can’t escape my reality, I try and try with no prevail. I try to be good but again I fail.
My last resort is to sit and pray, please Lord come take me away.
I don’t like this life I lead, it would not make you proud. I feel shame, I feel lame, I’m troubled within.
I don’t want this torment of letting my addictions overcome me, I’m tired of being the junkie passed out on the floor.
Excuses of my life choices echo in my head, I can’t cope with the stress, I need to get high.
Where am I? I ask as I open my eyes, you are dreaming God says, as he’s carrying me, lifting me high.
You see I am with you wherever you are, you feel like a failure but child you are mine.
We will get through this, you are stronger than you think, keep your head held high.
You feel alone, full of dispair, but I gave my life for your repair. Come here now child, I love you so.
I’m by your side through thick and thin, so when in doubt and troubles are near, breathe deep, release and know that I am there.
