My Father

I'm not proud of the things my father has done
Though, I am proud of the man he has become
It took him a lifetime to figure out
Drugs were the poison that kept him closed out 
The devil feeds on fearful souls and my father's was
with more then he knows
His children long for him as he clung to the needle 
Drugs are the poison the devil uses to tear families apart
Love is the tool that the Lord uses to bring them back

    Yes, drugs as well as alcohol both destroy love and family, it's a crying shame. but, there is always hope in the good Lord's love. Very good write.

    Your father may have done some terrible things, and in the long run you and your family may have suffered, along with his own suffering, but now, he is so much better than most, and that is probably partly because of what he went through. Life is strange indeed. A heartfelt write that must not have been easy. Love, Shar

    This one really touched my heart, my son is addicted to Meth, and I have cried, begged, and now finally God has taken over, he is now going to rehab, God is good, He knows the perfect time to take over....God bless you, and your family, Always, Christy
