Alcohol and Drugs

 You fought a battle  so long ago

Demons follow you wherever you go

Alcohol and drugs numb your pain

No matter what you cannot refrain

Your cries for help and no one is there

Your eyes are empty just a blank stare

Anger lingers, your mad at the world

You dream of seeing your little girl 

Alcohol and drugs numb your pain 

You have everything to lose and nothing to gain

You pray one day god will answer your prayers

And life cuts you a break and things become fair

Living on the streets, its time to change

Ask for help to fix your pain.

  • myself and me

    It is a hard and long battle to fight, and the battle is to against yourself.
    Well done.
