About the Poem

Every other person falls prey to addictions in life. The basic realization of life and its beauty gradually disappears with addictions. Understanding oneself and putting away addictions are a key for a beautiful life. Especially when addictions come in young teenage, its a pathetic plight for the age and the development into the old years. A strong need for awareness, is a small solution to the problem of smoking, drugs, and alcohol.

Watch the smoke
As it flies.
try to think,
What's wise.

Feeling high
In deep blue sky
Higher you fly
Harder you fall.

Addictions aplenty
Way before twenty,
Makes life painful,
Makes life empty.

Kick away the need,
To be kicked away in space,
There is nothingness there,
It's not a good place.
It's not a good place.
