By Bud Lemire

I feel sorry for stupidity, and people doing things they shouldn't
I'm happy that I am wiser, of those things that I know I wouldn't
It can seriously affect your Central Nervous System, and do great damage there
Your breathing will be faster, it'll be harder for you to breathe the air

Your body will get hot at times, you won't even want to eat
You'll think you have more energy, but you become incomplete
“Meth Mouth” is because it rots your teeth away
It's so addictive, you'll crave it every day

You'll push your body too hard, and way too fast
You'll feel exhausted, when the Meth doesn't last
You'll sleep for a long time, when it wears out
Your skin will itch, you'll have sores all about

Your heart will beat faster, as the days go by
Irregular heartbeats aren't normal, you might even die
I could say “It's their body to do with what they will”
The truth of the matter is, loss of life bothers me still

Everyone should know better, yet they don't seem to care
I wanted you to know all this, so you would be aware
If you know anyone you care for, and you see the signs above
Get them help as fast as you can, for that's a sign of love

Author Note:

Meth (methamphetamine) is a killer, and can do a lot of damage
to someone using it. If anyone you know is acting a bit stranger
than usual, and you have reason to suspect they could be a user
of some kind or another, Meth or something else. If you care for
them enough, and even if you don't, it is your responsibility to get
them the help they need. People tend to be pushed down the wrong
trail in life, by so-called friends, and need someone who truly cares
to bring them back to normality. It won't be easy, but it can be done.
Before it's too late, do it..
