Once when I was young....

Once when I was Young
I had dreams of flying high
I wanted to drift away and touch the sky
Little did I know my dreams would come true
Just not the kind of flying, I thought I would do
The minute I swallowed that first pill I couldn't take it back
Next thing I knew I was on the H track
I cease to live only to exist
Nothing I could do would let me resist
Then came the time I couldn't do this anymore
What started out as fun had now become a chore
I put my hand out and God took hold
It met its match and decided to fold
Life without drugs is better then can be
So here I am today, a whole new me
