    Hello, My name is DRUGS – I destroy homes, tear families apart, take your children, and that’s just the start. I’m more costly than diamonds, more costly than g...old, the sorrow I bring is a sight to behold. and if u need me, remember I’m easily found, I live all around you, in schools and in town. I live with the rich, I live with the poor, I live down the street, and maybe next door. My power is awesome; try me you’ll see, but if you do, you may NEVER break free. Just try me once and I might let you go, but try me twice, and I’ll own your soul. When I possess you, you’ll steal and you’ll lie. You do what you have to just to get high. The crimes you’ll commit, for my narcotic charms will be worth the pleasure you’ll feel in your arms. You’ll lie to your mother; you’ll steal from your dad When you see their tears, you should feel sad. But you’ll forget your morals and how you were raised, I’ll be your conscience, I’ll teach you my ways. I take kids from parents, and parents from kids, I turn people from god, and separate friends. I’ll take everything from you, your looks and your pride, I’ll be with you always, right by your side. You’ll give up everything… your family, your home… your friends, your money, then you’ll be alone. I’ll take and take, till you have nothing more to give. When I’m finished with you you’ll be lucky to live. If you try me be warned this is no game. If given the chance, I’ll drive you insane. I’ll ravish your body; I’ll control your mind. I’ll own you completely; your soul will be mine. The nightmares I’ll give you while lying in bed, the voices you’ll hear from inside your head, the sweats, the shakes, the visions you’ll see; I want you to know, these are all gifts from me, But then it’s too late, and you’ll know in your heart, that you are mine, and we shall not part. You’ll regret that you tried me, they always do, but you came to me, not I to you. You knew this would happen. Many times you were told, but you challenged my power, and chose to be bold. You could have said no, and just walked away, If you could live that day over, now what would you say? I’ll be your master; you will be my slave, I’ll even go with you, when you go to your grave. Now that you have met me, what will you do? Will you try me or not? Its all up to you. I can bring you more misery than words can tell. Come take my hand, I’ll take you to HELL! It not a Joke, share this with those that need to hear it! Thanks for spending your time on reading this story…… Hope YOU are forwarding this to all your friends.

    A Drug Users Pray
    Lord can you help teach me away
    to bear the marks I made.
    The needle tracks from the shooting' up,
    The nose bleeds from snorting to much crack,
    How about the bruises on my back,
    the payment for all the crap I smoked.
    Lord I know I done you wrong
    I know my life won't last that long
    with the damage done.
    i turn to you for help dear lord.
    As my breath grows shorter, and I am
    weak at last I wish that I had done this
    sooner, you could have helped me long ago.
    Now I lay at deaths door remembering
    all the pain and hurt I caused.
    I pray dear lord for a chance just one more.
    I promise to behave and to change my old ways.
    I promise dear lord to tell others of the misery
    that has befell me, and the misery that I have
    caused and the hope that lays in you so please
    dear Lord please hear this drug users prayer

    What a powerful message. It hurts to read it but it places everything that really happens in perspective. It took me several attempts to get through the tears and get to the finish. I hope that things are going well with you and yours! Here is to a new year! *hugs*
