Poems by Teens about Drug Abuse

Of all age categories that abuse drugs, the teen population is definitely the highest. Older people may use drugs on a recreational basis, but teens approach drugs with the same intensity and desperation with which they approach everything else. Many teens have a sense that they are immortal and that nothing that they do will have a lasting effect. Unfortunately, much to their chagrin, many find themselves struggling with addiction their whole lives.

    The lighter's a trigger
    I load my gun
    And swallow the bullets
    Straight to my lungs

    With every drag
    And hit I take
    My thoughtless mind
    Will come awake

    No more mommies leaving
    Or daddies ..........

    I take my second big hit
    The dark room becomes lit
    It's starting to make me feel good
    Just like it should
    I'm confused and I don't care to worry
    My memories are becoming blurry
    By the time the ..........

    How were the shrooms? The Beer? The LSD?
    I'll show you something more worthwhile than weed.
    I can show you how to steal and lie.
    Trust me, it's all you need to get by.
    Why go to school? Don't ..........

    Crystal was once my friend
    She was always there for me
    Whenever I was in need
    She helped me through my ups and downs
    And whenever I wore a frown
    I thought we would always be friends
    Until one ..........

    I'm lucky that I have the parents that I do,
    you would be lucky if you had them too.
    They don't have a lot of money because they spend too much on me,
    they can now barely afford the Toronto ..........

    Hiding under the covers.
    Pretending I don't see,
    Acting like I'm strong,
    Won't let you influence me.

    Hiding under the covers.
    She's hypnotized by your lies!
    It's obvious you've hurt ..........

    You only know what you learn
    I was so young and had no where to turn
    Growing up I said I wouldn’t do that to my kid
    I repeated the cycle and I did
    I left her alone I let her down
    just like my ..........

    Dear Friend,

    I'm slowly losing hope, and my minds beginning to
    race
    looking around not knowing, how I got to this
    place
    I've taken so many chances, and I wasted so much
    time
    still writing ..........

    Popping pills in the morning,
    Popping pills at night.
    Cutting deep into my skin,
    holding my blade tight.

    Dressed up to look my best,
    When I actually looked my worst.
    I thought all this ..........

    You were never really there,
    And when you came around, all people did was stare,
    You chose drugs over us,
    At least you loved yourself, that's a plus.

    I try to forget the past, I try to distance ..........
