Druggies and Drugs

Drugs- why do people do drugs? 
Yes, I am so cool 
with my needle and bag of crack, sitting in the corner of an abandoned warehouse 
                          staying away form the cops so I don’t get arrested. 
People say that it’s not their fault that they do drugs, 
                                                                                 let me know of a single instance 
    that drug addicts are NOT addicts of their own accord. 
                                                              In cases of peer pressure:
              they chose their friends. 
                                                              In cases of spiking drinks and food: 
              they decided to date that boy, 
                       -or go to that party where drugs were to be present. 

The irrefutable myth that one dose won’t get you addicted 
                                     has proven time and time again to be false. 
Something I don’t understand, 
       something I can’t stand- is when one is addicted yet in denial. 
You can’t stop doing it; therefore, you’re addicted-                           go to rehab!

Ah, the rehab center:                           Another one of my pet peeves. 
Why are we spending all this money to help those kids and adults 
                    who consume illegal substances, 
                                                                     before the legal age, 
                                                                                                      and so forth? 
More than half of the time, kids spend a little jail time 
                                               and then they are sent off to a rehab center 
                when they SHOULD be in juvenile detention center or jail. 

They broke the law- 
                                 and where do criminals go? 
                                                                             They go to jail.

    Cocaine, Meth, Acid, Magic Mushrooms, Uppers, Downers! I have done much in my 33 years, intentionally. I wanted to experience these things because of "where" and "how" I was raised. Thankfully I do not have an addictive personality. I have friends, close family that struggle with addiction. Oh, I have been married to maryjane for 20 years. Though provoking free verse friend. I like it!!Asavvy1

    One must be, to fully understand. They fill an area of the soul so empty that u don't want to exist. As for me, I was incarcerated at age 12 until age 17. I was a normal (kinda) child; scared to fight and humble. When I was released, I was an animal who had already started huffing anything avail. I now at 46 drink heavily, use cocaine, meth. and weed, daily. keep in mind I was abandoned. Nice write. Ignorant curiosity. You should read " A prickling feeling within. TC

    People do drugs my dear to fill a void... Yes it looks stupid to many and it destroys everyone, from the person to the family to the society, however, The absence of Love in ones life, is the very root in which the symptom of any addiction truely begins. Loved the poem and thanks for your comment on mine. Just have lost many to addiction and remeber when they were pure, young, motivated, and 99% of them were damaged from a lack of a father and or a really bad home life as a child. Not making an excuse, just stating a fact!
