AFFLICTIONS OF ADDICTION

A skin can get wound in a second
But it takes days
…if not weeks
…sometimes even months
…or years
To heal
So is the affliction of addiction

II
So do have time
…and create some space
Do take time to listen and pamper
Do create boundaries and help with distractions
An addicted soul needs all these and more
…to heal

III
Do not shame
And don’t try to tame
Do not sell rumours
And make them no humours
Do not intimidate and don’t try to frustrate
An addicted person is like an egg
…hanging in between life and death
All it takes is a little push
…to breathe life into them
…or drive them to their deaths

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
