Young men and women who thought they had it all
One by one I watched them fall
The sampling of a drug – the taste of booze
They thought their will power they could not lose
Soon they would find themselves withering in pain
And the devil right there to stake his claim.
Alcohol and drugs do not mix – it is just a temporary fix
There is not a pill that you can pop , that will help make you stop.
The stage of self denial that you go through
Is something that will not help you.
Day to day you grow weak , when professional
Help is what you seek.
Addiction has no age or gender
“ be strong . Do not surrender “.
