I don’t judge you for yours, don’t judge me for mine

By Dakota

Addiction! Addiction! Everywhere say

Who are you to judge us on our

Addiction—say there is not one person alive that is not addicted to something, whether it be

Baseball, football, cards, newspapers, coffee, golf, money, shoes, clothes

It could be anything …

If you are human you have an addiction

So excuse me

Who are you to judge me for mine…

I am a girl that is addicted to cocaine and have been for 56 years

Since I was nine

Years ago it was for the high

But now it is too kill the pain

Coca leaves are grown on our land!

Just because I have an addiction to

A drug…

People should just leave us alone

 we are hurting no one…

I don’t judge you for yours, don’t judge me for mine

People need to start worrying about themselves and stay

Out of everybody else’s business…
