Default Addiction poem.

I found this poem on another forum. Its so powerful I have just added it to the toolbox thread. Anyway I thought you might like to see it.

I am addiction.
I start in small subtle ways promising many things.
I promise you enjoyment and pleasure beyond your wildest dreams.
I deliver guilt and despair more horrible than your worst nightmare.
I promise you power and courage.
I give you feelings of powerlessness and hopelessness.
I will force you to live in fear always.
I promise you relief and escape from all your daily problems.
I create for you greater problems than you ever have imagined.
I promise comfort, I will give you pain.
I promise happiness, I create much sorrow.
I am addiction!
I will steal from you; your self-dignity, your families, your friends,
your children, your home, your dreams, your spirit, your life.
For love, freedom and happiness are impossible to find in my presence.
So never underestimate me, I am devious and manipulating.
I have no preference as to who I pick as my victim;
rich or poor, young or old, black or white, yellow or red.
I have killed men, women and children.
I have no conscience.
So, if you have met me, Always Beware,
for if you think you can beat me and I will be gone from your life
and all will go well again, Never forget that I will always be there...
waiting in the dark shadows, just around the corner.
I am very patient.
And I will laugh in your face if I can lure you into my evil world
of hell on earth once again.
I Am Addiction !!!
