Drugs are harmful and drugs are bad,
When you take drugs it makes your body sad.
It makes you feel weak instead of strong and glad,
It takes all your money which makes you feel mad.
Drugs are chemicals that you put into your body,
Which can help you feel better or make you very sorry.
Cold medicine is a kind of drug that’s good for you,
But cigarette, weed, and cocaine are drugs that can kill you.
Drugs can change your mood and the way your body does things,
It affects your thinking, sleeping, and the strength in your limbs.
You will feel alone and helpless with all the hurt it brings,
It’ll be like having only winters with no summers or springs.
Drugs can make you perform very badly in school,
Your grades will drop and you’ll look like a fool.
Your friends may not want to hang out with you anymore,
And you’ll be all alone going to the mall or to the store.
Drugs are very dangerous and they can kill,
Destroying your body is not God’s will.
Stay away from drugs and you won’t be ill,
You don’t have to worry, instead you can chill.
