With Darkness Come Death

How could family be so cruel?
How could I have been so naive & such a fool?
My sister had frozen off my money for years,
When I found out it reduced me to tears,
She was all I had, I'd have traded her life for mine,
But now is the time I question why I ever wasted my time,
hundreds of thousands I never knew we had,
She had gone and blown it on her friends new fad,
I will never forget her junkie friends,
The way they roped her in to her life's ends,
I always thought she would be able to control her addiction,
but then something happened beyond my prediction,
I got a phone call from the hospital up in town,
this phone call really dragged me down,
they told me they were sorry and nothing could be done,
she promised me this would never happen, that it was just
for fun,
she has broken her promise to me,
I am now alone and always will be.

I lost my older brother to drug abuse when I was 10 and he was the only family I had. My parents died in a car crash when I was 3 but now I'm 15 and I'm a foster child. Can I ask have you ever thought about giving up? I'm just a bit curious.
