The Addiction Epidemic

Drugs of pleasure are an escape from earth.
Living in a place known as imaginary paradise.
Once addicts come back to the world and reality,
The toleration of life is torturous.
Craving drugs as if they need food to satisfy an appetite.
Betrayal is being committed to support the habit of vileness.
Desperation leads to a life of crime for artificial gratification.
Recovery only occurs when the spirit is broken,
Willing to travel the rough journey to genuine happiness.
