Inspired by Kathy's poem on her grand-nephew who died of drug over dose a few days ago... my heart-felt condolences to Kathy
Drugs, the modern-curse of our timesDrugs indeed are a modern-curse of our times.
They are a menace to be dealt with in all seriousness.
I think the fault lies with the competitive, combative society
That just does not accept failure; which does not support
the weak, the vulnerable and the sensitive souls that are
so rare in the society these days that they
are termed and ridiculed as sissies and ninnies...
They end up resorting to escape mechanism,
Which they very easily find in drugs...
May God give them the strength not to be lured;
The power of endurance to those who are hooked
And find it in them to overcome the curse and not to succumb.
