Rescue Me

Remain anonymous
to tell your stories
of survival

dealing with the addicts
in your life
who by, free-will choice,

self medicate with substances
to numb their pain
while causing havoc

for the ones who love them.
Each addict’s story is unique
yet, somehow the same,

as they try to escape
their demons
leaving devastation in their wake.

Families become enablers
making excuses,
cleaning up messes,

or just living with the ache
of another’s self destructive

Generations are affected,
becoming rescuers
or imitators, 

genetic links.
Stop the cycle now
and create a new reality.
