drugs This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

hydros, oxys, totem poles and coke
to lots of sober people
they use them as a joke
addictive little pieces
of my history
and many of them stay here
right inside of me
they’ve ruined my life
and many others’ too
but i find no solution
for something else to do
so right before you try them
just listen to this part ...
drugs not only hurt you
they tear your life apart

I definitely feel your struggle come through in this piece. It reminds me to not over look the drugs my friends do.

i can honestly say that they do tear apart your life. I'm a recovering oxy addict. The high was not worth the withdrawals and pain you endore. great poem.

This Is Soo True. From My Experiment With Pills , It Has Pretty Much Ruled My Life. I Feel Like This Isn't The Life For Me. And Teens Or Yunger Even Older Dont Realize How Rosky They Are. Wish Theyd Understand !
