Dear Heroin

Dear heroin, wait there's nothing dire about you. The way you take and make a person to where they can't eat or sleep without you. I'm writing you this letter to let you know just how I feel Oh, that it might alone in this cold dark sell these tears that fall are real. You took someone so dear to me, and for you I have built up this hate . For you to fall off the face of this Earth, is a moment in which I can't wait . I love my brother, and his life was ended too soon. Out of all the people in my life, why him did you have to consume ? I can't lie Over the years I've been tempted to try you just to see. But by the grace of God, I avoided you, and you'll never get to me. You taking my friends and family, people I wasn't ready to let go. You took my niece's father, and now her daddy she will never know . Mothers, father's, daughters, and sons . All people we will never get back. But I'm building up an army, and against you we will attack. Even though you're no, I still wish that you could feel. These tears at night we cry are nothing short of real.

This letter to heroin makes incredible oodles of sense. It has hurt so many families.
