Favorite Quote:
“The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.”
― Mark Twain

My name is Marijuana
Call me weed for short
I got into this country through a man in a Mexican resort
Ever since then, I’ve been used worldwide
I will kill your hope and pride
I’m valued more than diamonds, treasured more than bread
Use me, and I will mess with your head
I’ll make a lawyer forget law
I’ll make an optimist find flaw
I’ll make a student forget books
I’ll make a model forget her looks
I’ll make a teacher forget how to teach
I’ll make a speaker forget speech
I’ll eat you alive
I promise you, you will not survive
I’ve destroyed so many careers
I’ll make everything come alive, especially your fears
So if you have taken the path of weed
Believe me, you will never be freed.
