Meth Poem sent to me

Beth -

I thought you might be interested in this poem written by a meth addicted Indian girl ...

I destroy homes, I tear families apart,I 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 charmsWill 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.

Hi Beth. This peom relates to all these drugs and or anyone with a addiction problem. The drugs use the victim and in most cases turns a individual into a DESPERATE, unconcious, lying, thief. The only motive is to get high, and they will consume and destroy anyone and everything in the path of destruction their desperation for the drug takes them....All that once was, no longer is part of their concious. I lost my sister to ghb sold over the counter, as a vitamin suppliment, she had no idea what poison she was consuming until it was too late. It was a real sick tragic story that haunts me every single day.. My youngest sister is now hooked on oxy cotin.. Although she is abusing the drug knowingly, she is NOT even close to the person i once knew.. These drugs destroy eagerly and once addicted, its hell to be the one still standing in the same place, watching helplessly as if it were cancer eating away her soul... I know people who stole necklaces off thier dying grandmothers neck while pretending to give a last kiss.. I know a girl who left her baby at the hospital and has no concern to see him but uses excuses (lies) that she is making effort to go see the baby just to get out the door to get more pills.. I know people who use the elderly knowing they are terminal just to befriend them untill they pass away and steal all they had. IT NEVER ENDS THE EXTREME DESPAIR AND DESPERATE SICK LEVELS THESE DRUGS BRING ONCE WONDERFUL PEOPLE TOO A LEVEL SO LOW ITS UNBEARABLE.. I have been involved in fighting this drug parasite for a long time now and its like domino's... I tried helping those i had any confrontation with with all i have in me.. i USED money, time, love, compassion, and i pray, and i pray.. Its not a "good time" taking poison and believing it wont hurt you or you wont get addicted. IF YOU THINK YOU CAN HANDLE IT AND IT WONT HAPPEN TO YOU, CHANCES ARE YOU ARE ALREADY TAKEN.. THESE DRUGS WILL TAKE YOU FOR A RIDE AND YOU NO LONGER CAN EVEN RATIONALIZE RIGHT FROM WRONG AND ALL THAT YOU ONCE WERE, WILL BE CONSUMED AND YOU NO LONGER ARE YOU...Like me, i want to live my life with my morals, my concious, and with a desire to maintain my human functions the best i can, as i watch my family decay helplessly I can only ask God to be with us all.. God bless everyone..

I have been sober off of Meth for one week now. I am doing it for myself and for my boyfriend who is in treatment for 70 days....he put himself there so i decided to try it too. He is lucky though, he is away from the people and the streets, and i am still here. Everything in this poem is true. This is the 4 time i have tried being sober. I have been to jail many times, treatment 4 times (not including out-patient and aftercares) This drug grabs you and holds you! Tighter than the love of your life, even tighter than your family can hold you. It's very sad....I have this poem posted on my wall. I am 20 years old....and in this drugs grip....if you have never done it, dont! I have to live the rest of my life with this addiction, and wondering what its like to live with out one.....

I have lost a lot of friends to meth. The girl who wrote this poem was found dead shortly after she was released from jail. With the needle still in her arms.

I met a nice girl where i worked. I thought she was fantastic and special. I wont go into lots of detail but i had tried meth once we call it P (pure and they smoke it) in my country.
I got to know this beautiful young lady for a year then found out she was on it a lot. I met her partner and her friends. seen the holes in the faces heard there storys and seen their need to chace the dragon. One of them died from it but it didnt scare any of them. The kept chasing. I really liked this girl (i had a partner at the time) but realised she will soon be dead unless i did something. So i got some myself and invited her around. We soon had a relationship (i broke my partners heart). I told her that she needs to sort her life we moved away togeather and made a pact to stop. i did and she found it hard but managed after a long while.. Now she is in love with me and thats why shes stopped. I have never told her i love her like she does me. She is very special but not the one for me. Now she is safe and has a fantasic job and good support with new friends i am now going my own way to study.. I think i saved this girls life but whats 2 broken hearts if she is still alive!?

Death By Meth

today I have met my match
piece by piece I was broken down
now I am tormented by failure and wrath
and my will power is no where to be found

the wounds have forever scarred my soul
with the bitter taste of death
because everything I cherished most
fell victim to my addiction to meth

in complete ignorance I made the awful choice
to smoke that demonic pipe regardless of the voice

that so strongly told me not too
but I thought I had the power to overcome
realize once this drug has got you
a slave to misery is what you become

i write every word in agony
i am scared to sleep or rest
because then I must face reality
i chose death by doing meth

family has become memories
just pictures of my past
i am now my worst enemy
my reflection is broken glass

clouds shadow my every breath of life
i cannot find the words to describe
the aches and pains I endure inside
and all I can say is why

oh, how sad it really is
to watch a Godly man be destroyed
Lord have mercy on my kids
three beautiful girls and a handsome boy

to all that I love I leave you with this
please forgive me for my weakness
that real love I will always miss
I give you these words with a hug and a kiss

I have never heard such a dead on discription of this drug/cancer put so powerfully. You have a definite gift my friend, and you've used it to touch an addicts dope sick heart(my heart),and to help me reafirmed my disgust and utter contempt with this poison and with my own self inflicted personal battle that i fight every day. hopefully all of you that read this can share it with a fellow man or woman who has yet to meet the monster that we call meth and maybe it will have the same profound impact on the hearts of those who know not this disease as it has had on those who do.

To who all read this,

I just wanted to let you know that this poem was not written by an Indian girl written in jail. My husband had written this poem while serving time in Branchville Correctional Faclity located in Indiana. We have orginial proof of documents but sold the rights to a publishing company. He knows what heart ache that it brings and he is living proof of how to change your life around.

I have been clean and sober for 11 months & it has been one of the hardest fights of my life & will be for the rest of my life. Its true it takes everything good in your life and turns it sour, I used for twelve long years & I now know I will be fighting this disease forever.

I have been sober since oct 2003. this is the poem i send everyone who has ever ever talked about doing ice. i carry this poem with me everywhere so whenever i feel the urge i pull it out and read it. i also have one hanging up in my room to remind me of the better person that i am today.

i am only 12 years old but i know that this poem is very true. i have an uncle in prison, and has been there many times before. he was going to church for a while and was very involved in church until he started hanging around with his drug useing friends again. this is a very sad topic. he got high one day and did a drive by to a car, he almost killed a 2 month old baby, he is now serving his time in 4th avenue jail until his court date and he may be in prison for as low as 5 years and upto as long as 48 years. i loved him so much and still do, but i pray for him that he gets his life straight. he used to live with us and my oarents would try to help him out, but he has stolen from me many times. it is not easy for him to get sraight and it is a very bad habit to try to brake.... i am going to pray for any of you who are thinking about doing this horrifing drug and i hope that all of you can find god in your lifes if you havent already. thanx for listening and always remember god is there for you no matter what situation your in, you can always go to him to get help...............

I prefer to be careful with drugs like Sildenafil due it's strong formula.
