Drug Free

I see childrens lives saved every day
by using drugs the right way.
Their diseases kept at bay
by prescription drugs used the right way.

I read about people every day
whose lives are ruined, why? I can’t say.
They abuse drugs and alcohol each day
thinking it will make their problems go away.

They think the drugs make them cool
but they just end up failing school.
Their families and friends don’t know what to do.
I won’t use drugs, why would you?

Marijuana, cocaine, and tobacco, too,
are just waiting to sink their teeth into you.
They slowly eat your insides away
’till all that’s left before death is to pray.

This is not for my family and me.
