Addiction Is A Common Emotion

poem about fear


Becoming addicted to something really isn’t that hard.
It happens everyday.

People get addicted to cigarettes.
It seems innocent, until it kills you from the inside.
I am not addicted to cigarettes.

People get addicted to alcohol.
Drowning your sorrows is always easier than facing them.
I am not addicted to alcohol.

People get addicted to sex.
Sharing intimacy can make you feel less alone.
I am not addicted to sex.

Fear is a common human emotion.
It can become a familiar crutch.
I am addicted to fear.
