I look into the mirror...

by Eibutsina   Jun 25, 2004


I look into the mirror
Who is that i see
I don't recognise the reflection
Staring straight back at me
My body is slowly fading
And Ive lost a lot of weight
I look back into my black eyes
and have no control of my fate

I look into the mirror
My stomach churns up tight
My eyes cave in and are swollen
I wonder where ill get my fix tonight
my skin is yellow and jaundice
My chest is constantly in pain
two years ago i gave this sh*t up
But I'm back to old habits again

I look into the mirror
And my habit has once again taken control
Years of junky-ing around the town
Is starting to take its toll
My veins have close to collapsed
I live with the daily scars
I tried to start smoking the sh*t
Cause there's no veins left in my arms

I look into the mirror
i don't know what i have become
i remember my very first time
i thought it would be fun
and look at me now
five years down the track
A damaged mind and body later
And still i keep going back

I look into the mirror
And i can tell you what i see
i see someone underneath
the dirty junky staring back at me
and what i plan to do
is make the rest of my peers see
How drugs have taken there toll over the years
And how this came to be

So please hold onto to my words
And listen to them clear
I don't wanna see anymore young people
Doing what i have done here
So please just have a read
and listen to my advice
Ive been what your going through
And Heroin ruined my life.

    This is really inspiring, i have been caught up in certain things and couldn't find a way to stop until my bestfriend pulled my back into reality. I really like the way you try to reach out and make people learn from your mistakes.
