Drugs: Ode to tik

Ode to tik
I destroy homes, i tear families apart I take your children and that’s just the start. I’m 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 around you, and in town. I live with rich, I live with poor, And I live just down the street and maybe next door.

I’m made in a lab, but not one like you think; I can be made under the kitchen sink, In your child’s closet and even out in the woods, If this scares you to death, then it certainly should! I have many names, but there’s one you know best, I’m sure you’ve heard of me, my name is crystal meth, My power is awesome, try me you’ll see, But if you do you’ll never break free! Just try me once and I might let you go, But if you try me twice, then I’ll own your soul, When I possess you, you’ll steal and lie, You’ll do what you have to do, just to get high.

The crimes you’ll commit for my narcotic charms Will be worth the pleasure, you’ll steal from your dad, When you see their tears you must 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 their kids,I separate friends.I’ll take everything from you, your looks and your pride, I’ll be with you always right by your side, You’ll give up everything, your family, your home,

Your money, and your true friend. Then you’ll be alone,I take and see till you have no more to give, When I finish 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 inside your head, The sweats, the shakes, and the visions you’ll see, I want you to know these are gifts from me!

By then it’s too late and you’ll know in your heart,That you are mine and we shall never part, You’ll regret that you tried me (they always do), But come to me, not I to you!You knew this would happen, many times you were told,But you challenge my power; you chose to be bold,You should have said no and walked away,If you could live that day over now, what would you say?

My power is awesome as I told you before,I take your life and make it so dim and sore,I’ll be your master and you’ll be my slave,I’ll even go with you, when you go to your grave!

Now 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 than words can tell,Come take my hand let me take you to “HELL”!
