The Life of an Addict
Brianna Gautama and Andrea Patricia
At first I thought it was the light in the darkness
To save me from stress and feeling helpless
They told me to try it, just this time
But I didn’t know that I would be caught in a crime.
The first time, I told myself I wouldn’t do it again
But the second time, I was caught in a bargain
They told me, “We’ll give this to you for free.”
And I sadly accepted temptation brought to me.
Little by little I wanted more every day
Although I knew it was the wrong way
Soon enough, the authorities found out
My life is ruined, it was all for naught.
Now, I am stuck in a convoy of police cars,
That would take me to a life behind bars
Oh, I wish I hadn’t done it at all
That didn’t take those pills that had taken their toll.
