It

Written by: Kimberly LaRocca

It eats away at who you are
who you could have been
Aspirations and inspiration are replaced
with the need for its everlasting presence

I hate it
Wish that I could destroy it
But
I can't control others
So I can only pray you escape its grips

It does not care about the stolen lives it claims
Dreams that were robbed
Families it destroyed

It only wants to be smoked, snorted, injected
Achieve its single goal
To decimate the lives of those who allow it to
