    I wasn't always like this
    Used to have a place of my own
    Had a car, house, job and a phone
    Loved ones who loved me and
    friends who trusted me
    and time to do as I pleased
    I wasn't always one of these
    That was before drugs and
    desperation brought me to my
    knee's.

    Now I am broken and bitter and tired
    no longer ambitious for the things I
    desired, seeking not finding a relief
    for my lost soul, wishing and hoping
    someone else woud take control
    Food Pantry today, woman so mean
    made me desire to start fasting
    stay lean and mean...
    Stomach growling, cravings calling
    my desire is falling again.
    I use to be just like you my friend.

    Back to rehab for the umpteenth time
    been here so often it ought to be a
    crime. Just one more chance to get
    my act together, I know I could do
    so much better. You think I like this
    you think , I like pain, you think I love
    the drugs so much I must be insane
    Whether you smoking, or shooting
    or sniffin or sippin
    There is one thing I tell you again
    All of us got some kind of sickness
    something that goes wrong in our
    brain..."the difference may be that
    you tried once and never tried it
    again". But, something inside of me
    is not like you
    yet something
    inside of me
    is!

    All I can say is: but for the grace of JAH this is I- I think the thing one has to remember is that JAH loves them same as he loves us- This is an issue that is really on the back burner of society- we've basically thrown away these poor people. Glad you shared this.

    JAH Love always.
