Poem: Dear Mr and Mrs Heroin

I DESTROY HOMES, I TEAR FAMILIES APART.
I TAKE YOUR CHILDREN AND THAT’S JUST A START.

MORE VALUED THAN DIAMONDS, MORE PRECIOUS THAN GOLD...
THE SORROW I BRING IS A SIGHT TO BEHOLD.


IF YOU NEED ME REMEMBER I’M EASILY FOUND.

I LIVE ALL AROUND YOU; IN SCHOOL AND IN TOWN.

I LIVE WITH THE RICH, I LIVE WITH THE POOR,
I LIVE DOWN THE STREET AND MAYBE NEXT DOOR.

I’M SAFE IN YOUR POCKET, OR IN YOUR SYRINGE.
WHEN EVER I’M MENTIONED, PEOPLE WILL CRINGE.

I HAVE MANY NAMES. THEY CHANGE NOW AND THEN.
BUT I’M SURE YOU’VE HEARD OF ME, I’M HEROIN.

MY POWER IS AWESOME. TRY ME, YOU’LL SEE.
BUT IF YOU DO, YOU MAY NEVER BREAK FREE.

TRY ME JUST ONCE AND I MIGHT LET YOU GO,
BUT TRY ME TWICE, AND I’LL OWN YOUR SOUL.

WHEN I POSSESS YOU, YOU’LL STEAL AND YOU’LL LIE.
YOU’LL DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO JUST TO GET HIGH.

THE CRIMES YOU COMMIT FOR MY NARCOTIC CHARMS
WILL BE WORTH THE PLEASURES YOU FEEL IN MY ARMS.

YOU’LL LIE TO YOUR MOTHER; YOU’LL STEAL FROM YOUR DAD.
WHEN YOU SEE THEIR TEARS, IT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL SAD.

JUST FORGET YOUR MORALS AND HOW YOU WERE RAISED.
I’LL BE YOUR CONSCIENCE. I’LL TEACH YOU MY WAYS.

I TAKE KIDS FROM THEIR PARENTS; I TAKE PARENTS FROM KIDS.
I TURN PEOPLE FROM GOD, I HIDE IN OLD RIGS.

I’LL TAKE EVERYTHING FROM YOU, YOUR LOOKS AND PRIDE.
I’LL BE WITH YOU ALWAYS; RIGHT BY YOUR SIDE.

YOU’LL GIVE UP EVERYTHING, YOUR FAMILY, YOUR HOME,
YOU’RE MONEY, YOUR TRUE FRIEND, AND YOU’LL BE ALONE.

I’LL TAKE AND TAKE ‘TIL YOU HAVE NO MORE TO GIVE.
WHEN I’M FINISHED WITH YOU, YOU’LL BE LUCKY TO LIVE.

IF YOU TRY ME, BE WARNED, THIS IS NOT A GAME.
IF I’M GIVEN THE CHANCE, I’LL DRIVE YOU INSANE.

I’LL RAVAGE YOUR BODY; I’LL CONTROL YOUR MIND.
I’LL OWN YOU COMPLETELY; YOUR SOUL WILL BE MINE.

THE NIGHTMARES I’LL GIVE YOU WHEN YOU’RE LYING IN BED.
AND THE VOICES YOU’LL HEAR FROM INSIDE YOUR HEAD.

THE SWEATS, THE SHAKES, AND THE VISIONS YOU’LL SEE.
I WANT YOU TO KNOW THESE ARE ALL GIFTS FROM ME.

BY THEN IT’S TOO LATE, AND YOU’LL KNOW IN YOUR HEART
THAT YOU ARE NOW MINE AND WE’LL NEVER PART.

YOU’LL REGRET THAT YOU TRIED ME (THEY ALWAYS DO)
BUT YOU CAME TO ME, NOT I TO YOU.

YOU KNEW IT WOULD HAPPEN, MANY TIMES YOU WERE TOLD.
BUT YOU CHALLENGED MY POWER, YOU CHOSE TO BE BOLD.

YOU COULD HAVE SAID NO, AND THEN WALKED AWAY.
IF YOU COULD LIVE THAT DAY OVER, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?

MY POWER IS AWESOME, AS I TOLD YOU BEFORE.
I CAN TAKE YOUR LIFE, MAKE IT SO DIM AND SORE.

I’LL BE YOUR MASTER AND YOU’LL BE MY SLAVE.
I’LL EVEN BE WITH YOU WHEN YOU GO TO YOUR GRAVE.

NOW THAT YOU’VE MET ME, WHAT WILL YOU DO?
WILL YOU TRY ME OR NOT? IT’S ALL UP TO YOU.

I CAN SHOW YOU MORE MISERY THEN WORDS CAN TELL.
COME TAKE MY HAND, LET ME LEAD YOU TO HELL.
