Thanksgivng in Rehab
Another addict at The Lodge
It is myself I can no longer dodge
But what have these drugs really done?
'Tis the time of year for friends and fun
I lost my family and friends who meant the most
Came home some nights more burnt than toast
Was I thinkful to put them through this?
Honestly, today I think its me I miss
Elders in my life tell me they care
I avoided the truth and picked the dare
Put on this mask to hide the tears
An adrenaline rush running from fears
My pride was false, a tricky sneak
Drugs were how I ruined my life from minute to week
Never grateful for an abundance of chances
Listened to the devil with no advances
All this shit reminds me of the girl I was
And today I am thankful because
My addiction is impossible to exchange
But it is me who has the power to change
Pandamonium and drugs are fact
Please remember you don't have to go back
Be happy with the things you love
Because Amanda, they are not what "everyone does"
I was a Thanksgiving baby
That acted crazy
& I have a heart of gold
That wants to grow old
So like a turkey, remember you cannot fly
Keep your feet on the ground and don't get high!
