I can ignore your Siren’s call,
Too many times you’ve made me fall.
Once I use, I become small-
Without you here, I have it all.
Keep on calling- I stand tall!
At times I questioned where I belong.
You made me feel right by doing wrong.
I run from you fast, I change my song.
My need for you is long, long gone.
Without your crutch, I am strong.
You took my peace, stole my pride.
No longer free, my hands were tied.
An honest man, I often lied,
Looked in the mirror, as tears were cried.
Each time I used, part of me died.
I leave behind acts of a sociopath,
Destroying myself in personal bloodbath,
Blaming carnage on a cold God’s wrath.
Done complicating, see life’s simple math:
Now at peace at this place in my path.
Every day living like it’s my last day.
Down on my knees to Higher Spirit I pray:
Give me your insight, show me your way,
Reveal to me now my part in this play,
Mold me great potter, I am your clay.
