why ?

Hope you like it !!

Hope you like it !!

Why do you do this to me again and again
I am your family I am your friend
but it just seems you only love it
the thing that's turning your life to spit
I try to help you I keep reaching out
you just keep saying you don't know what I'm talking about
the drugs are turning you into what you hated all along
just like them it's the same old song
we don't have to be like them don't you see
the cycle can stop with you and me
don't let the drugs tear us apart
I know you can beat this with all of my heart
please let me help don't push me away
I know together we can find a way

I wrote this for my sister, I love Poetry especially about addiction !!
