Passed Caring

She's on the heroin - looking a sorry state indeed
Consuming the substance with considerable greed -
And as she rides the high intoxicated with powder
She becomes confident and starts being louder.

She would rob you blind if she possibly could
To inject the drugs into her waiting blood,
She a prominent member of the criminal fraternity -
But not one of popularity, despite her notoriety.

She studies premises and people for shoplifting,
Considered irritable, a nuisance and intimidating;
But she carries on regardless of her transgressions,
Sometimes getting arrested and making confessions.

She's in and out of prison all of the time,
With small sentences befitting to her crime,
But this doesn't deter her from re-offending
As she's in a vicious circle that's never ending.

  1. I envy your ability to turn a situation into a beautiful poem. I can't do poetry but I do enjoy reading it. Thanks.
