Mike.n.Atlanta put this up a couple of times in response to others' blogs.  I thought this would also be a good place for it.  (He says it's written by Emilee Kerrigan, but I haven't been able to verify that and it seems unlikely as she is an 11 year old.)



Drugs control my life

So don't try to convince me that

I can be sober

Because at the end of the day

I can't do this

And I'm not going to lie to myself by saying

I will prosper & succeed

So I will remind myself

That I am a selfish terrible person

And nothing you tell me will make me believe

I deserve a good life

Because no matter what

I will always be addicted

And I wonder if

Things will get better

Because when I look in the mirror, I will always think

Can I recover?


Now read it from bottom to top.
