Dear drugs and alcohol,

You make the most successful men your slave. You control millions of minds around the world. When their not on you they dream of you, and when they don’t have you they think of ways to steal you. You’re the reason why so many have lost loved ones. You’re a cause of cancer and major disorders. You’ve taken away peoples voices and their lungs. You’ve deteriorated people’s skin, glazed over their eyes, and robbed them of their youth. Pretended to help people through their problems, and gave false hope. You’ve foiled education and job opportunities, ruined marriages and left children to fend for themselves. You’ve caused violence, helped people fall through the cracks and lead and helped toward depression. You’ve built and helped economies, and gave people jobs. You’ve healed some but killed so many more and made billions of dollars. The world hates you but they can’t live without you.


Someone who doesn’t love you

We, humans, the world, must be drug free, cigarette free and alchool free.

Even if drugs and alcohol have been around for an extremely long time (they have), that does NOT make them beneficial. Certain drugs can be used to a certain extent, but we can all live without them. Naturally, if you're an addict, a withdrawal may kill you. I'm not saying that we should eliminate them all starting right now; I'm just pointing out that the bad they do usually outways the good. Sunshine is absolutely right about one thing: we CAN CERTAINLY get along without them. The fact that dr... (more »)

My novel needs readers. Anybody interested? It's part drama, thriller, action, and social commentary on our corrupt teen world. It takes place in the near future.

I submitted about six pieces of my novel on here, but they are currently pending approval. A very long approval it seems, none of them have been approved yet. But I can send it to you by different means.
