Small Puff

September 10, 2009

As I'm laying here in silence,
with Cancer in my lungs,
I realize the consequences of everything I've done.
I shouldn't have given in,
and taken that small puff.
I shouldn't have become addicted,
but that small puff was good enough.
I should have just told someone,
I should have been strong for rehab,
but I took that one last drag,
and lost everything I had.

My friend got diagnosed with Lung Cancer, and this is kind of written from their point of view.
