Burning bridges & broken hearts Drug addiction is where it starts Consumed my life, just like a storm With my first high a thief was born There is no truth, you might of heard A lie was told with every word Decisions were made at an extreme Done some things, I couldn't of dreamed It's hard to say sorry but I'll try Was a piece of & can't deny Had no respect or any remorse headed for death on a crash course Up until the day I got the day I got busted There's no way I could of been trusted All my emotions & feelings were gone couldn't be depended or counted on Didn't know what I was capable of Put my daughter at risk because of a drug I can't believe it, I'm so ashamed Have no excuse, I except all the blame Only thing to do now is make a change Must forgive my self in exchange It's time I put my foot on the ground Never to late to turn it around

Derek, a poem about hope after hitting the bottom of the well. There is only one way out and that is reaching upwards to be free of the drug addiction. ~ Sonia
