Everything you have will someday be gone. Even if you don’t miss it now, you probably will later. So take pictures and hide them in your memories so you can recall them later after everything that is becomes everything that was. OR I know you’re hurting, even if it’s just when you’re alone and thoughts seem to rush into your head and you can’t seem to keep them from coming in. But there can be beauty in pain; Even though sometimes it’s hard to see.

Dear drugs and alcohol,

You make the most successful men your slave. You control millions of minds around the world. When their not on you they dream of you, and when they don’t have you they think of ways to steal you. You’re the reason why so many have lost loved ones. You’re a cause of cancer and major disorders. You’ve taken away peoples voices and their lungs. You’ve deteriorated people’s skin, glazed over their eyes, and robbed them of their youth. Pretended to help people through their problems, and gave false hope. You’ve foiled education and job opportunities, ruined marriages and left children to fend for themselves. You’ve caused violence, helped people fall through the cracks and lead and helped toward depression. You’ve built and helped economies, and gave people jobs. You’ve healed some but killed so many more and made billions of dollars. The world hates you but they can’t live without you.


Someone who doesn’t love you

my parents smoke a lot and i don't see what good it does. all it does is make it harder for you to breathe and is just a horrible habit to get into. i don't see what people see in it... everyone says that it is cool but i would rather be healthy and have good lungs than be "cool". which i really don't see how that is cool

goldrush77, you do drugs? I certainly hope not. Drugs ruin people's lives. How old are you?

This is certainly one of my favorites: "I will become even more undignified than this, and I will be humiliated in my own eyes." -2 Samuel 6:22

Um... I'd like you to take a look at my poem goldrush77 . I'm not asking you to conform to my beliefs but I'd just like you to read it. I think you might find it interesting.

God bless,

I agree that drugs are completely and totally bad. As for goldrush77's comment, i'm not sure if you're kidding or not, but it is not funny. What r u thinking?!?
