Choose Your Poison

I'm only twenty but feel old and used
Perhaps from all the chemicals I've abused
Who cares? I will find out one day
Every addict has the same price to pay
Whiz, coke, trips and E's
Designed to suit and eager to please
A lil something to excite the night
Something to totally f*ck with your sight
Pack a bong, smoke it down
Coughing painfully with a frown
Suck on a trip under your tongue
You're in for about ten hours of fun
Roll the note, lines on the tile
Lines so big they measure a mile
A single tear rolls down your cheek
Once again you've found that rush you seek
Heart pounding hard, is it about to burst?
If the left side of my head doesn't first
If you ask someone "Why use drugs"?
You'll get a bewildered look and maybe a shrug

About this poem:
I wrote this when I was 20 and my life was all about drugs and basically destroying myself. It took a long time for me to realize that the things I loved the most were the things that were ruining my life. Drugs are bad mmmkay.
