I can say it is a somber muse;
The one that comes from drug abuse
Innocence born craving
And the opiate enslaving
A product of her mom’s addiction
Withdrawal-her unfair affliction
Sleepless hours, frantic cries
Jitters, fevers, questioning eyes
And, Mom, it’s hard to face the truth
Baby’s sick ‘cause of your drug use.
I’ve never walked in your shoes,
but can I ask what made you choose
to ignore the damage you would cause
and keep taking drugs without pause?
**Unfortunately, I take care of a lot of babies born addicted to drugs. At this time, there are 8 "drug babies" in our unit. I got to shower one of them with love last night. She is beautiful and sweet, and it makes me sad to see her struggling with something that could have been prevented.
