    To all my brothers and sisters trapped in mental prison.......


    The contents of the glass, take you from 0-60 real fast,
    But then you crash and burn, and lay in the ashe.
    That it creates when it burns everything in sight,
    All cause you tryin to reach new heights.
    Heights where no man has ever gone.
    But that flight only last so long.
    It’s a short trip, but you want it to go on and on and on and on…
    You try to get your fix on the down low,
    Cause you don’t want your peeps to know.
    How that glass makes you feel when your strong pull, makes that glass glow.
    It starts off slow, and you feel in control
    But that glass is slippery that you choose to hold.
    You desire this glass, like a long passionate kiss.
    Nothing you won’t do for it, no such thing as a risk.
    Now the Glass has got you.But the problem is…you don’t know.
    Or you choose not to find out.
    That the glass has turned you out.
    You are now the Glass’s *****.
    You may try ,but you can’t switch
    To any another, it’s a part of you, till death do you part.
    You should have listend at the start of your temptation.
    Now this glass is a fixation.
    In your life and you can’t live for you must give
    All you have to the glass, and Its kicking your ***.
    You would have never expected.
    So you never respected I’ts power.
    So strong you would rather kiss the glass than shower.
    Now you will do anything to keep that glass happy,even if you have to kill
    Anything to satisfy the hunger of the 30 minute thrill.
    Between the black lines you should have been readin
    Should have tip toed through the garden of Eden,
    Because the serpent is killing you slowly as it moves around under the sand.
    Feeling less than a man, you and your Glass in one hand.
    Wishing you would have ran, but the race would not last,
    Should have listened to that little voice, that told you
    Don’t touch that glass.

    thanks, this waswritten with family members in mind, In talking to them they all knew or thought they knew what crack would do but they chose not to listen to a voice of reason, and it will seek and destroy, hopefully it will reach someone who is thinnking about taking that first Pull!
