Beyond the blue

BEYOND THE BLUE

I am furious with you, my friend,
For many people around the globe went beyond the blue,
They indulged in drugs, to get a dreamy feeling,
In order to escape from the problems of their lives.

Even with overdose of legal drugs many lives did end,
Smoking is truly a slow motion suicide; and the abuse of
Cocaine, ecstasy and marijuana result in a slurred speech,
Distortion of vision, liver, kidney damage and ultimately death.

Even though alcohol beverage relieves fatigue,
It is its over indulgence that causes giddiness,
Blurred vision, distortion in perception of distance,
Suicidal tendencies and contribution to road accidents!

I am still furious with you, my friend,
Because many people went beyond the blue,
As a result of drugs and liquor abuse,
Now here you are, slowly passing through the blue!
