This is the last poem swim wife had published before her MS took her pen away.
People speak in irony every day
or maybe just opposites...maybe lies
they say they love you
with contempt in their eyes
and they smile at you
Children play in the streets
and they look so innocent, untouched
it's a shame they have to grow up to
worry about tomorrow
if there is one
History is destined to repeat itself
so it seems
ghosts from the past haunt you in
your dreams every night
and you wake up screaming.
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.
