JunkieMy parents told me I could get better.More Like This
I could recover from my addictions
and put this mess behind me.
My friends said I would survive this,
become stronger as I fought my demons.
I thought I could break free from the cycle.
I thought I could stop.
I thought I could leave it behind and never look at it again.
I didn't know what being a junkie meant.
I didn't know that the hunger never really goes away.
I didn't know I would always be a slave to it.
I didn't know.
They still don't.
