Drug Abuse Poem

Step Dad Is An Addict

I'm 13. My step dad is a drug addict. He recently went away to rehab.
He's told me and my mom so many lies. He's so incredibly talented at lying just to get a fix. I wrote this as a way to just let it go and never think about him again.

Hiding under the covers.
Pretending I don't see,
Acting like I'm strong,
Won't let you influence me.

Hiding under the covers.
She's hypnotized by your lies!
It's obvious you've hurt us,
again, time after time.

Hiding under the covers.
Hearing your words slur, watching you fall.
Are the pills for the back pain?
Do you even hurt at all?

Hiding under the covers.
We're not the ones to blame.
You make us feel so guilty,
But no more, We proclaim!

Hiding under the covers,
and now I show my face.
No longer can you hurt us,
your healing, somewhere safe.

This is amazing and I know the pain. I'm almost 16, got out of that house and moved in with my real dad. The only reason I stayed at mom's was for my little sister I didn't want her to see what I had to. I would be laying on the couch they would think I would be asleep he would do his drugs and I would just role over and not say a thing it was breaking me inside it was killing me to watch. I always told myself I will never be like him. One day I got tired of it all I wasn't sleeping and he done it I hustled up and told him everything I felt but then I wish I wouldn't have because it's all gotten worse and my little sister is 11 and knows everything that happens now.
