I Just read this poem on a post about coke...thought i would put in my journal...its powerful stuff.

My name is Cocaine(anon):

My name is Cocaine - call me Coke for short.
I entered this country without a passport.
Ever since then I've made lots of scum rich.
Some have been murdered and found in a ditch.
I'm more valued than diamonds, more treasured than gold.
Use me just once and you too will be sold.
I'll make a schoolboy forget his books.
I'll make a beauty queen forget her looks.
I'll take renowned speaker and make a bore.
I'll take a mother and make her a *****.
I'll make a schoolteacher forget how to teach.
I'll make a preacher not want to preach.
I'll take all your rent money and you'll get evicted.
I'll murder your babies or they'll be born addicted.
I'll make you rob and steal and kill.
When you're under my power you have no will.
Remember my friend my name is " Big C ".
If you try me just one time you may never be free.
I've destroyed actors, politicians and many a hero.
I've decreased bank accounts from millions to zero.
I make shooting and stabbing a common affair.
Once I take charge you won't have a prayer.
Now that you know me what will you do ?
You'll have to decide, It's all up to you.
The day you agree to sit in my saddle.
The decision is one that no one can straddle.
Listen to me, and please listen well.
When you ride with cocaine you are headed for hell !!!

yeah, this poem is powerful and has had the desired effect on me at least: I am not trying coke ever ever in my life. Even if I am being given it for free or even if I am being given a lifetime supply for free, I don't even want to know once how it feels, in general I have decided to just not try anything new but the only drug I may still try is ecstasy because I want to experience the empathy it makes you feel and because I have heard it's non addictive ...

WOW!!!!  nice poem.   Now for the ecstasy......there are people that have died from taking that.  They had such an energy boost that they died from going and going and going.  They became dehydrated.  A couple of kids collapsed on a dance floor.  My daughter had a friend who is addicted to this.  Please dont go down that road.

It is a shame, that people, and I use that term loosely, don't understand that it ain't cool to play in certain places, and with certain things and people.  Chalk it up to total immaturity, and no empathy or compassion for others.  Good post Cathy, and I'm happy to see all of the support you are getting here...

I apologize. I got carried away. I forget how raw we are sometimes. I spent many years addicted to heroin, and I swear, I thought I'd never get clean. If I can, I know you can, no matter what your head tells you. Give yourself a break, and give up the fight.

by bobby139, Jul 29, 2008
well thank you for giving up this stupid fight, i still dont understand why if you were addicted to heroin you would attack ppl like you have....but i will say one thing, i am fighting bad w/ds and you did help me forget for awhile, oh and my head does tell me that i will win this...have a good eve ram :)

heres one more for you ... POEM  

I cause people grief, I cause people pain,
you may not know me ,my name is cocaine.

I make people cry, I make people shout,
try me twice and you'll never get out.

Once you try me, you'll want more,
I live all around you, I might live next door.

When I possess you, you'll steal, cheat, and lie,
the crimes you'll commit just to get high.

If you need me, I live all around,
I live in your schools, I live in your town.

I'll take everything from you, your morals your pride,
once I'm with you, I'm always by your side.

You'll steal from your mom, and lie to your dad,
even when they cry you are never sad.

Come with me and do my ways,
forget your family and how you were raised.

I turn people from family, and separate friends,
and I'll be your friend in the very end.

Once you're with me you'll never love again,
You'll fade, and blow away with the wind.

I'll take away your family, your friends, your home,
then you won't have anyone, you'll be all alone.

I'll take until you have nothing left to give,
when I'm done with you, there will be no will to live.

I'm warning you this is no game,
you'll be lucky if I don't drive you insane.

I live with you everywhere, even in your bed,
the things you will see inside of your head.

Now that I've got you, you'll never be free,
at the end you'll regret ever trying me.

You should have said no, and walked away,
but instead you said yes and choose to stay.

I can bring more sorrow and misery that words can tell,
if you try me I'll lead you straight to hell.

Now I'm your master, you are my slave,
I'll go with you everywhere even to your grave.

Now that you're met me, what will you do?
will you try me or not, it's all up to you.

Hi Cathy , Great poem and it is true, oh so true. As for the guy who wants to try ecstasy, I  hope he changes his mind.  I've never tried it, dont want to try it and I dont understand anyone one that wants to, well i guess i kinda do understand because we were all there one time or another with some kind of substance.
I hope that person reads what could happen just THE FIRST time they try it. One time could be the last time.
