Killing Yourself

Oh my...


You said you just wanted to get high


But now it's like you need something more to get by


First a pill now it's some kind of white powder


Yet you complain over your body you have no power


Watching you slowly go down


Nothing on my face but a single tear and a frown


I try to ask and beg you to quit


But only hateful words do you spit


On your wrists you slit


And your parents throw a fit


You laugh and take it as a joke


But truth is the drug you continue to take in....your body revokes


When you don't have it...it's as if on your breath you choke


You shake, scratch, and fiddle


In deep need of that single dirty needle


No matter where it comes from


You just know you need some


You give up your body for that one hit


Knowing its killing you but you just can't quit


Your kicked out of your only home and your school


'Cause we all know 'No Drugs' is the #1 rule


Yet you can't stop trying to be cool so you continue to look like the main fool


Your family and friends turn their backs


Your return we can already see is one long gone fact


On your casket I'll lay a single lovely white flower


But over my body I'm going to keep my power.....
