Addiction is a rudimentary death Hazard;
The ultimate game of Russian rou'lette!
It's a graveyard full of pits.
It swallows the rich and the poor,
the 'righteous' and the 'sinful'
Addiction is a one night-stand gig
though you keep coming for the last time.
Its like embracing a stinging bee
just to taste a drop of honey.
Addiction is a bitter-sweet herb.
Its sweet to the taste buds
but corrosive to the soul.
Let me confess.....
For years i have lived in utmost denial,
oblivious of my addiciton predicament.
I walk one step forward and two steps backwards.
Everyday I cry my tears dry
and hush my consciousness to silence.
Though guilty i plead Innocent!!
Knowingly I neglect my iniquity.
Back and forth i keep on swallowing the bitter-sweet herb.
The more i try to stop the more i indulge.
My consciousness stumbles and falls in despair.
Behind closed doors i hurt
i sob myself to sleep.
Am a total wreck customized into a blazing smile.
I am my own curse!
My own limbs I deep into the devils pot.
Today I tie my own noose...
"I want out...!", I shout a whisper.
In the fall of the night I hang my old-self
my remains i burry deep in the earth's crust.
The symbolic shadow of the day-break
emancipate my new me.
Today hence forth I Live right,
I walk straight and steady!!!
