Drug Abuse Poem

Regretting A Past With Drugs

I chose drugs over my little girl just like my mother did to me. I'm clean now and wish I had another chance. I'm sorry, Marissa.

I Did It Too

Published: December 2007

You only know what you learn.
I was so young and had nowhere to turn.
Growing up, I said I wouldn't do that to my kid.
I repeated the cycle, and I did.
I left her alone; I let her down.
Just like my mother, I was never around.
My daughter cries the same way I used to.
I wonder if my mom ever hurt like I do.
I miss my little girl so much,
and now I'm on the right track.
I wish they would give her back.
I did to her what was done to me.
I wish I could tell her I'm sorry.

I was 13 when I first turned to illegal drugs.
I watched my dad spill his marijuana crumbs over my favorite rugs
"Stop!! Mommy stop!!" I begged and I pleaded
Mommy followed daddy as he lead
Several years pass and drugs made me, me
This one thing destroyed my morals and my family
It's never too late to rehabilitate
Take action now and choose your fate

I'm a 28 year old mother of 2 wonderful children and I'm currently struggling with a Meth addiction. I also come from parents that still struggle with addiction. I lived with my aunt as a child and often felt my parents choose they're drugs and partying over me. I said I would never hurt my kids the way I hurt when I was they're age. My addiction started about an year ago and controlled my life very quickly, I ended up overdosing and my kids are now with my brother and his wife. I feel so pissed at myself for doing this to my kids, I've been selfish and by reading these poems tonight I've gained a lot of strength and am ready to kick this addiction to the curb. Thank you for writing this it made me realize so much.

I am 18 years old now. I used to struggle with addiction. I had a baby boy. His name was King. I wish I could have my baby boy back.
