Dear Friend

Dear Friend,

I'm slowly losing hope,
and my mind's beginning to race
looking around not knowing
how I got to this place

I've taken so many chances,
and I wasted so much time
still writing this letter,
as my words continue to rhyme

I thought drugs were a joke,
don't be naive they'll get you
They never get you that high,
they only know how to subdue

And to these delusional drugs,
I'll probably lose my life
I'm too immature to have children,
too uncaring to be a wife

You may say I need help,
that I just need some medicine to get me by
But you're just not understanding
how much these drugs want me to die

I know they'll get me soon,
pretty soon I won't even fight
Trapped in the darkness,
still haven't found the light...

If these are my last words to you,
I want them to forever last
remembering all our memories,
wishing I could re-live the past

I no longer want to stay in the present,
I wish it was already done
Just always know you may start the day with many,
but will end it with one

Always keep an open mind in life,
I had to learn that on my own
and look beyond people's words,
there's many things that are unshown

There are some people out to get you,
and some that just wait to die
Some are out for money,
and others live life just to get high

I've meet all of these kind of people
but could never be one
Threw many pennies in a wishing well,
but left the outcome un-won

Please hold on to your life
and just don't ever let it go
You can't understand now,
but trust me, someday you'll know...

And now I have to leave,
I'm left with no other choice
My words begin to disappear
as I slowly lose my voice

But remember me,
please just remember me,
Finally my turn...
soon I'll be free
