BE YOU AND SAY F*** YOU TO ANYBODY THAT DOESN'T LIKE IT. -Shane Dawson


Darling’s on a trip with no end in sight

Afraid of coming down, she stays high

It’s time to pretend, she takes the pipe

Eyes wide shut, she opens up her mind

 

Take another one to clear your head

Don’t look back, drift away instead

Another sip of the potion in your cup

Faded, now everything’s looking up

 

Darling’s like a flame shining bright

Soon she’ll go out, for now she’s alive

Lighter in hand, ready to take flight

Breathes deep, opens up her third eye

 

Take another one to calm your heart

It’ll kick in soon, wait for it to start

Another pull and you’re at peace now

You've never rolled, I’ll teach you how

 

She’s been twenty one since she was a preteen

Easily influenced by restricted movie scenes

She feels California love off California drugs

Hoping she’ll be remembered if she dies young

She searches for the next dose, for the next pill

And nothing ever changes, nothing ever will

Brief relief may be all she feels, but it isn't real

 

Drugs rule everything around me


The author's comments:

This piece was influenced by the countless teenage drug-abusers that I've met throughout my adolecence. They all had their own reasons for making the choices that they made--whether it was for pleasure, for acceptance, or for escape. For most kids that I've come across, it was the third reason. This poem is meant to embody their experiences.
