My name is Meth

"For all sad words of tongue and pen,
the saddest are these, 'It might have been'."
John Greenleaf Whittier

Did you know that Methamphetamine abuse was common after World War II? This illegal drug has continued since to be highly addictive and extremely abused.
Angela Fatino was a very young girl when she started to fight against methamphetamine addiction. The battle lasted more than two years. She finally committed suicide and it was confirmed that there was meth in her system when she killed herself. She was 15.
Alicia Van Davis, author of “The Poem”, died when she was 21. Crystal meth was the cause of her death. After her death, they were cleaning out her apartment and in her top dresser drawer, found a poem she had written.

My Name is Meth
I destroy homes, I tear families apart,
Take your children, and that's just the start.
I'm more costly than diamonds, more precious than gold,
The sorrow I bring is a sight to behold.
If you 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.
I'm made in a lab, but not like you think,
I can be made under the kitchen sink.
In your child's closet, and even in the woods,
If this scares you to death, well it certainly should.
I have many names, but there's one you know best,
I'm sure you've heard of me, my name is Crystal Meth.
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? It's all up to you.
I can bring you more misery than words can tell,
Come take my hand, let me lead you to hell.

So many lives are affected by meth.  This drug has destroyed many good people, torn apart families and even taken lives. If you are living with this dangerous addiction or know of someone in need of help and guidance, please get help now before it's too late.
My next post will cover the effects of Chrystal Meth in more detail.

"The deepest human defeat suffered by human beings
is constituted by the difference between
what one was capable of becoming and what one has in fact become."

    1. Apologies for the late reply. I use Blogger - not sure if you are on Wordpress. All I can suggest is that you change your settings so that comments have to be moderated before published - if you get spam comments you can either delete them or send them to a spam folder and they will not be published on your blog. Perhaps you could google "Comment settings". Thanks for checking out my blog x
