My name is "Meth".
I destroy homes, I tear families apart,
Take your children, and that's just a start.
I'm more costly than diamonds, more precious than gold.
The sorrow I bring is a sight to behold.
If you need me, remember, I'm easily found.
I live all around you,in schools and in town.
I live with the rich. I live with the poor.
I live down the street, and maybe next door.
I'm made in a lab, but not like you think.
I can be made under the kitchen sink,
In your child's closet, and even in the woods.
If this scares you to death, well, it certainly should.
I have many names, but there's one you know best.
I'm sure you've heard of me. My name is crystal meth.
My power is awesome. Try me you'll see.
But, if you do, you may never break free.
Just try me once and I might let you go.
But try me twice, and I'll own your soul.
When I possess you, you'll steal and lie.
You do what you have to just to get high.
The crimes you'll commit for my narcotic charms
Will be worth the the pleasure you'll feel in your arms.
You'll lie to your mother. You'll steal from your dad.
When you see their tears, you should feel sad,
But you'll forget your morals and how you were raised.
I'll be your conscience. I'll teach you my ways.
I take kids from parents, and parents from kids.
I turn people from God and separate friends.
I'll take everything from you, your looks and your pride.
I'll be with you always right by your side.
You'll give up everything, your family, your home,
Your friends, your money,
Then you'll be alone.
I'll take and take, until you have nothing more to give.
When I'm finished with you, you'll be lucky to live.
If you try me, be warned this is no game.
If given a chance, I'll drive you insane.
I'll ravish your body. I'll control your mind.
I'll own you completely. Your soul will be mine.
The nightmares I give you while lying in bed,
The voices you'll hear from inside your head,
The sweats, the shakes, the visions you'll see,
I want you to know; these are all gifts from me.
But then it's too late, and you'll know in your heart
That you are mine and we shall not part.
You'll regret that you tried me. They always do.
But you came to me, not I to you.
You knew this would happen. Many times you were told.
But you challenged my power and chose to be bold.
You could have said" No" and just walked away.
If you could live that day over now, what would you say?
I'll be your master and you will be my slave.
I'll even go with you, when you go to your grave.
Now that you have met me, what will you do?
Will you try me or not? It's all up to you.
I can bring you more misery than words can tell.
Come take my hand; let me lead you to hell.

She was released from jail, but true to the story, the drug owned her. Soon after she was found dead with the needle still in her arm.**
Please don't do drugs.
