This poem of mine Addiction View goes with the blog I’ve been writing about addiction. Read it below and let me know what you think. Please remember that all the things on this page is copyrighted material.
She sits in her chair
Watching the screen
She is filled with compassion about the life of this woman before her
wondering what about him makes her stay
As she hopes and prays that he’ll get it together someday
She sees the game he plays
That continue to inflict massive pain
Thinking what is it about him that keeps her stagnate
Turning that into what’s wrong with that girl that makes her allow all this to continue
Finally when she can’t take the pattern any longer,
She turns off her screen
Only to find it was never truly a screen but simply another image of her own life
And as she stands there suddenly looking at the image of her past life she wonders
How does this make sense?
What does this all mean?
So she asks the vision of herself in the mirror
And it tells her
Don’t be so quick to assume you misunderstand
Everyone has a tricky card in their hand
For some it may just take a little longer to see
But the same woman she is now
Is who you used to be
She continues to stare in confusion she couldn’t hide
So the image shows her all the pain she once held inside
While saying all of us has dealt with a trap we didn’t see
Landing us into an addition that nearly took away the person we were meant to be.
