1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

    I'm an artist at heart, but have only really been given the talent of words. And even there it's questionable. Here's the first poem I want to put here, I plan on posting a few more - hope it's not too boring!

    This mirrored existence,
    of strife and love;
    is but a consequence,
    of all we pursue and desire;

    That which we truly seek,
    is hidden only so deep;
    but we refuse to open our eyes,
    for the fact that our desires are bleak;

    That transparent figure so labeled "karma",
    comes unabashed to our face;
    he gives us the woes and the wins,
    and we present to him - continued failure;

    For if karma is to teach us naught,
    and the choice of importance is to be forgotten;
    then what have we to boast of in our ignorance,
    but broken innards and burned countryside;

    You sit and wonder,
    certain things you wish left unspoken;
    but why continue that failure,
    of pretending to be in solitude;

    We all have our cycle,
    that goes round and round;
    yet all we feel is contempt,
    when the cycle's moon is waning;

    We learn to embrace,
    to fully embrace;
    but our fears hold us back,
    from perfection;

    From wholeness,
    and from happiness,
    and from honesty;

    Oh, but those fears,
    we would rather not face them;
    and continue our descent,
    into the underbelly of essence.
