Cocaine

by Linda Slusser
(Lansing, MI, USA)



Some call it the grey world..for me it was black.
It grabbed right ahold..I thought I would never come back.

I turned to deceit..became a thief and a liar,
Out of desperation I tried to get higher.

My children were starving..I could not pay the rent.
I did not think about where my life went.

I tried to sell drugs to keep my kids fed,
I was a user..it was addiction instead.

My life fell apart..all I did was sit,
I could think of nothing but having a hit.

I reached bottom as most usually do,
I could either get up or feel sad and blue.

Life was so sorrowful there in the hood,
I thought about leaving..it was time that I should.

Cocaine is a drug that will make you feel free.
But, it robs you of life..mine was taken from me.
