Poem From The Heart – Drugs

Carrie Wright

October 12, 2015 ·

I saw this on Facebook and really felt the need to share it. I have NEVER seen a more perfect poem, written in the saddest way. 

“I destroy homes, tear families… apart – take your children, and that’s just the start.
I’m more costly than diamonds, more costly than gold – the sorrow I bring is a sight to behold.
And if you need me, remember I’m easily found.
I live all around you, in schools and in town.
I live with the rich, I live with the poor, I live down the street, and maybe next door.
My power is awesome – try me you’ll see.
But if you do, you may never break free.
Just try me 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’ll commit, for my narcotic charms, will be worth the pleasure you’ll feel in your arms.
You’ll lie to your mother; you’ll steal from your dad.
When you see their tears, you should feel sad.
But you’ll forget your morals and how you were raised.
I’ll be your conscience, I’ll teach you my ways.
I take kids from parents, and parents from kids, I turn people from God, and separate from 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 friends, your money, then you’ll be alone.
I’ll take and I’ll take, till you have nothing more to give.
When I’m finished with you you’ll be lucky to live.
If you try me be warned this is no game.
If given the chance, I’ll drive you insane.
I’ll ravish your body, I’ll control your mind.
I’ll own you completely; your soul will be mine.
The nightmares I’ll give you while lying in bed.
The voices you’ll hear from inside your head.
The sweats, the shakes, the visions you’ll see.
I want you to know, these are all gifts from me.
But then it’s too late, and you’ll know in your heart, that you are mine, and we shall not part.
You’ll regret that you tried me, they always do.
But you came to me, not I to you.
You knew this would happen.
Many times you were told, but you challenged my power, and chose to be bold.
You could have said no, and just walked away.
If you could live that day over, now what would you say?
I’ll be your master; you will be my slave.
I’ll even go with you, when you go to your grave.
Now that you have met me, what will you do?
Will you try me or not?
Its all up to you.
I can bring you more misery than words can tell.
Come take my hand, let me lead you to hell.”

Poem Friday – You Just Don’t Know

 

It was Sunday,  sitting at the hotel, cigar and drink in hand
I said to David how quiet, peaceful, and beautiful this corner of the land
 
First of the month of October, nothing unusual, last day, tomorrow we leave
I could not have imagined the hours ahead, I could never have perceived
 
Played the poker machines had a good win, ‘til 11:30 or there about
Went back to the room and straight to bed as there was an early checkout
 
Little did I realize what was happening not far away
So unaware, asleep then, to wake up to the news, to my dismay
 
A crazy shooter, many injured, so many lives lost
Never to return home, so much pain for loved ones, dreams gone, what a cost.
 
It is a good thing that we don’t know what is ahead, nothing planned
They would not be there, singing, laughing, listening to music of the band
 
58 more Angels in heaven as  life left their bodies as they fell
One, you can be sure, that shooter, he is in Hell
 
We must learn from this… like butterflies spread your wings,  just go with the flow
Anything can happen in a moment to end your life, your dreams,  you just don’t know

That Kid With a Moth on his Nose is Now 18

pastedgraphic-1

I remember in 2010 how I wrote a Poem called ‘That smile’
Seems like yesterday but it has been quite a while

It was about my grandson Jayden who is such a pleasure
My pride in him is immense, I could never be able to measure

Today is his birthday, the years have gone too fast
I so wanted his funny young innocent boy time to last

But alas he is now a young man
And of course naturally I am his biggest fan

He is indépendant, honest, respectful and delightful in all ways
I so wish him a great birthday and abundance of wealth health and happiness for the rest of his days

That kid with a moth on his nose is now eighteen
For me, how blessed for 18 years have I been

Poem Friday – 10/21/2016 – From Outside looking in

eye-in-keyhole

From Outside Looking in

This Election from an Outsider looking in
It drives you crazy, One does not know where to begin

Hillary Clinton as we know well
There is a lot of History to tell

Donald Trump he is new to the Political scene
In the construction and real estate business he has been

My opinion well I guess it does not count for much
As I am an Australian unable to vote as such

Donald is the one you vote for if you want change
Unfortunate but he is always in the middle of the main stream media firing range

We only get to see one side, tiny part of his speeches
While journalists commit media bias breaches

Now Wikileaks on the other hand
Give you an insight of the Clinton Brand
It should be that her future is written in sand
Washed away by truth that should see her banned

I hope for Julian Assange’s sake
That Donald wins the presidential stake

In my opinion Julian’s life could be a little unsafe, may be on the line
As if Hillary wins she could aim for him with revenge on her mind

Because there is a question about the death of the young man Seth Rich
DNC staffer, Shot multiple times, suspected of being a snitch

Donald Trump may not be perfect but will give it a good try
If you want more of the same, vote Clinton but I would question Why?

We need to make changes, the young, some adult choices
I believe if we don’t, there will be more violence, and unheard voices

America is a great country, Powerful, beautiful, free and strong
Everyone should be proud of this country and stand for the National Anthem song

The divisions will get greater I believe if you vote for the same
In my opinion Clinton wants your vote with no care of you, being president is her aim

She has lied, deceived and been to the country untrue
Many have died under her care with the protection of the democratic crew

Well as you can see I am a supporter of Mr Donald Trump for Presidential pass
I like his choices of running mates who are intelligent, experienced and have class

I believe he will be a negotiator with peace and prosperity on his mind
This country could see great changes, be safe with secure borders by design

Look in the end what I have to say or believe is of no consequence to you
But make sure you vote for what you believe in and feel. Vote for integrity and what you believe is true

Just saying this election has broken some barriers of tradition of how to win
It certainly has our attention as an Outsider looking in

This of course is my opinion

Poem Friday – 05/26/2016 – ‘If You Don’t Do Different Nothing Will Change’

starting_line

If you don’t do different nothing will change
Author – Lesley Voth

I tell myself and my readers most every day
Do something different in some small way

If you want to lose weight change something little, what you eat
Putting on those few pounds you could beat

Clean up your room you might be amazed what you find
The trinket that you have looked for so long, the bed it fell behind

You so want to play the guitar or the piano or something like that
If you don’t do different then your wants will be idle chat

Go down a different road that you have always wondered about
It may change your life, that perfect house an absolute knockout

You want to fulfill a life time ambition
I bet you just need to get off your arse by your own admission

It just a little thing that could change your life
Just go for a walk you may bump into your future husband or wife

I wrote a book of Poems that I am about to introduce
Something I had never done before, some thought me a goose

Look it may feel odd, not in your comfort zone and strange
But if you don’t do different nothing will change

Poem Friday – Life Is Good I am Blessed, the Best it Can Be

Life is Good Its the best It can Be
Author: Lesley Voth

I have to say in a grateful way
In the past two weeks or more I have had a wonderful stay

IMG_2985

First of all at the beginning of march was my sons wedding
A few days later off to USA, Actually to Houston Texas they were heading

From all accounts they had a great time felt so much at ease
Thank you Dave and my friends for giving them some lifetime memories

For me well I headed off To Queanbeyan, near Canberra on my bike
A good 8 1/2 hours ride so it was quite the hike

IMG_1848
Franny’s Birthday I had to be there
To miss that I would not dare

IMG_1845

Plenty of Bollinger, yep we drank most of the night
Had to celebrate the girls party with the best right?

After the party a couple of days later
Headed off to Bermagui with the Pugs, what could be greater

Well ‘Sugar’ not into this travel thing as she griped most of the way
The two boys Ziggie and Gus for them asleep in the back, was such a relaxing day

IMG_1975

Three lovable pugs so cute they are the best
They ran themselves ragged, once they got home they had to rest

Donna and I we swam each day and to the beach we walked
Great time together also ate, drank, slept and talked

Caught a few fish which we cooked on the BBQ
It was so enjoyable but time flew

Franny arrived a couple of days before the end
We did a few chores around the place, productive time we did spend

Well back to Canberra we all took off Sunday
Monday packed my bike, headed off Tuesday sad but the end of my stay

Another 8 1/2 ride and so really pleasant warm and still
The temperatures fantastic, Had to watch out for Roos and wombats, a lot of road kill

I am so pleased I came back on that day
Cause the temperatures fell like big time would have been uncomfortable in a big way

There is nothing worse like riding in the freezing cold
But riding in warm weather is a feeling to great to behold

Well here I am back in Queenscliffe, what a great place
A little chilly, good coffee and for a couple of weeks this is my base

IMG_2020

Yep March was a busy time for me
But I had a great time from the Pictures you see

 

Life is good I am blessed, the best it can be

Poem Friday – 09/11/2015 – Our Tom’s Memorial

IMG_0224

The Memorial for our Tom Was held last Friday Week
The weather was partly sunny and partly bleak

IMG_1348

Most of his friends wore the distinctive white hat
As Tom used to wear, rain, wind or hail on his head it sat

IMG_1349

Our Tom he was a return soldier a Vietnam Vet
For His countries appreciation, The Purple Heart medal he did get

To the Houston National Cemetery we all rode our bikes in formation
As we are so proud of him as a person and he fought for the USA nation

IMG_1374

To witness this ceremony for me was an honor and a blessing
The patriot guards Standing attention with the pride they were addressing

IMG_1382

As the ceremony started tears from Heaven fell again
Those men stood at attention with the flags, in that pouring rain

IMG_1385

The tradition of the gun salute and the bugle playing Taps
Made you feel so proud to be a witness, gave me goose bumps as silence lapse

IMG_1387

The flag folding ceremony was equally impressive with great precision
To his son it was presented, I am sure Tom  would have been proud with that decision

IMG_1390

Just as the ceremony finished, no kidding, there was a single clap of thunder
Some one said the Gates of Heaven just opened, was he present?, it makes you wonder
