I am addicted.I am addicted to juvie,where you stay locked up in a small cell,a place where you have to eat what they serve you,a place that is filled with lots of anger and hate. I am addicted.I am addicted to hate,where every day is a constant battle with myself.Hate – a place that leads to nowhere,a self-destructing habit. I am addicted.I am addicted to weed,a drug that makes everything seem betterbut is just an illusion,a drug that makes me happy for a minutebut when I come down it’s me again – a very sad and depressed person. I am addicted.I am addicted to sadness,a place that I hate being, but yet reside in that emotion. It’s a very cold and scary place. I am addicted.I am addicted to my family.My family is filled with hate, betrayal, lies, and sadness.My family – I have to see them everyday struggling, struggling to get through the day, just even to get along. I am addicted.I am addicted to juvie, hate, weed, sadness, and family.My addiction isn’t a positive addiction.It got me hooked. I am addicted because I’ve never felt any different.It’s the only thing I know.It’s a constant battle.
I am addicted.
