Addiction Poem about Family

Who Are You To Judge My Husband?

I've watched my husband deteriorate w/ his drug addiction. He's now lying in a hospital fighting for his life due to his bad decisions & possibly serving jail time. The media & community choose to see a criminal, but unless you know someone, you have no idea the pain that person suffers. This is a tragic story of someone who has made such an impact on so many people, & had the potential to be something great, but drugs took over his life, & transformed him into someone unrecognizable. ♥ HLB3

Who Are You To Judge?

People want to say bad things
And judge you for the monster you've become
But they don't know the truth
Of just how bad drugs had made you numb

This is not a story of a criminal
as you all would want to say
It's a sad sad story of a great hearted man
whose soul was slowly chipped away

He's been many great things to many people
But all you want to hear is the bad
We know the real person he is inside
Before the addiction, before things turned sad

Everyday is like living in a nightmare
When you wake up to someone you don't know
To know that he is completely gone
The drugs have taken him and have complete control

Do you know how it feels to lose someone you love
To a drug that's more powerful than you?
You feel so helpless against it
You cry, you plea, "Please don't do this! I love you!"

Is it my fault? Could I have done more?
Am I the one to blame?
Why wasn't I just enough?
Questions that haunt me everyday.

So go on and judge and make your accusations
Must be nice to be so perfect
No mistakes, No wrong turns
Always right, Always correct

Make believe you know more than me
Go ahead and lie about every little bit
Whatever amuses yourselves
Because I really don't give a sh*t!

You don't know the pain he's suffered
The tears he's cried, he's taken a toll
We've all had to watch him deteriorate
From the great man we know to this lost soul

You are still my husband,
And I'll always be here to support you.
I won't let them beat you down. I'll put up a fight.
I'll do whatever I can to protect you.

I am so lost without you.
Many times I've asked God, "Why?"
But one thing I always know to be true,
I'll love you ''til the day that I die...

I understand and hear you completely babe. My heart goes out to you and your man. I'm an ex user and that sh*t takes over you completely, you have no say sometimes and you lose yourself in all the mess. Your man don't mean to be hurting you babe but you have told him you will help him and be supportive and that didn't work then you have to be strong and tell him if he wants to be with you he needs to get some help. but by all means if you are happy the way it is good on you and all the best x
