Addiction
By George Carroll

Addiction, be it of lust, drugs, food-

it is difficult to control.

Some manage to kick the habit

With a will power to escape its grasp.

 

Some die, never having conquered

The delights they think they are in.

The mind is a playground at times,

But the game is about life or death.

 

I wish there were an easy answer,

To control the morass we find ourselves in.

Prayer for some is the answer,

Others have lost all hope,

By ignoring the plight they are in.
