Addiction Poem

How drugs can impact your life

The Drug

© Ryan Groisboecfk
Have you ever been tempted?
Have you ever wanted to try?
The things I will say
May cause you to cry.

The things that can happen
If you ever take a drug,
You'll always be tired
You'll be slow as a slug.

There are so many illnesses
sure to be caught,
Your lungs,
Your heart and
Your brain Will rot.

If you ever take drugs
You will never turn back,
Wealth and
Looks you surly will lack.

You will be trapped forever
under the spell,
Of Cocaine, Marijuana
And others to tell.

Take a single drug
you'll only want more,
Temptations, temptations
Coming straight through the door.

If you avoid taking drugs
Fame and riches you could get,
But if your not convinced
not a single need would be met.

They'll run you out of town
They wont want you back,
The only place you can live
Is a small, rundown shack.

If you are still taking drugs
I know you're a fool,
Back then they were popular
Now there not cool.

Or any other reason
You consuming drugs
Is worse than even treason.

But If still your not convinced
I don't know what else to say,
Just that drugs can conquer
The life you live today.
