Addiction Poem

Consumed By Addiction

This was my life battling an addiction to alcohol/meth and pills. I have now been sober for a little over 4 years, and as I read back on my poems, I realize just how precious my life is today and how thankful I am that God delivered me out of my own hell.

The Life Of Addiction


Published: November 2016

So many emotions, it's out of control.
What have I done? Have I sold my soul?

The price is steep, and there's nothing to gain.
But still I continue and expect to stay sane!

It gets you nowhere; it leaves nothing but shame!
What's it gonna take to give up this game?

I'm going through life at a very fast pace.
Missing out on so much and rarely showing my face.

I go and I go, leaving so much behind,
Looking for something that I'll never find!

I'm wasting my life, watching the years go by
All in the name of just getting high!
