Dear friend

by Sandra Campbell

I look around and what do i see?
I see marijuana and beer looking at me !
I see my dear friend standing in a corner with a needle !
I drop to my knees and beg him please, don't do that it can kill you !
you don't need this garbage in your life!
you have 2 kids and a wonderful wife !
just stop long enough to put that in to consideration !
just think what you'll lose to drugs and booze !
you don't need this kind of life !
just look at your wife !
she loves you so much with all her heart !
can't you see your tearing her apart !
please friend just say no!
