A Letter From Your Disease

Hello fellow addicts I am your disease,
I will never let you sleep or put your mind at ease,

I will always be here no matter where you go,
I am smarter than you and I am in control,

Family, friends, and loved ones they won't matter anymore,
I'll take everything you got and still want something more

I was there for you in the good times but mostly in the bad,
I've made you feel so happy but in the end you was always sad

You will lie to everyone and say that I ain't real,
but if that's the case why can't you put down that pill

I come in many forms, and shapes, and size
Then following comes denial, deceit, and lies

I will turn you from everyone that tries to take you from me
Together we will spend all eternity

I'll embrace you in my arms and I'll never set you free,
Spend our life together won't that make you happy,

Don't let those people tell you what I am all about,
Cause then you'll find a way; a way to kick me out

Well here I go now I'll just be on my way
but not for to much longer cause I still have much to say

So when you think I'm gone and you can finally be at ease,
Just remember this I will always be your disease.

Omg! It's like I can see it in my mind. it talking to me. It's so true what it's saying because it will never leave it will always be with us till eternity. and even being 10, 20, 30 year sober in recovery you can still relapse it does take a matter of time it takes a matter of wanting to be sober and wanting to get rid of everything, feeling, troubles it give you.

I now facilitate Vet to Vet meetings at the Birmingham VA, and we read these type of poems to the groups and they absolutely love them.
