Favorite Quote:
"God sees us as we can be but loves us as we are."

You stop where the cross roads meet
You can ehar the dirt being kicked up by some other person's feet
You see the stranger and smile
They grin back with jagged, yellow teeth that look like broken pieces of tile
You slowly approach with caution at hand
As they come closer, their skin is pale and in need of a tan
You try to shake hands but miss on the touch.
You feel your ckeeks burn hot and they start to blush
You're curious about what could've caused this error
But then the dark realization dawns on you that it's not skin you're touching
It's just a cold, flat mirror

The author's comments:
I just want to say that this intervention wasn't for me and that I do not have problems with addiction or ant substance abuse. This poem just came out of the blue and i ahd to write it down, but I hope that it may help people suffering from addiction.
