Poem -

I want to get high

I want to get high

it has been
30 years
Since
I have
Partook
In
The devil's 
Lettuce 

But
I want to
Get
High

I am
Tired
I am
Weary

And 

I want to
Get high

Wife
Is pissed
At me
My
Boss
is so
young
He just
Got
Potty
Trained

And

I want to get
High

I don't need
To
Snort,
take 💊 pills
Nor
Do I do
Needles
Just
Past
Me
A
Blunt

Cause

I want to
Get
High.......

I say all
of
This
But
In the end
I won't 

My deductive 
Reasoning
Will
Talk
Me out
Of what
My
Soul
And artistic expression 
Is screaming
For me
To
Do
And
That
Is

 get high, get stoned
get baked
And forget it
All
If not for a second

Greg although I dont want to get high, I thoroughly enjoyed it.  It flowed so well and great verses. Like the way you put one or few words per line. Px

HI Greg...Sometimes when life seems so impossible and the stress overwhelming, it is normal to revert back to a time when you could just forget it all in a moment of being high...I wish life was simple enough to just get high and forget about it...but the problems are always still there....But I understand the frustration that leads to the feelings. When we were younger, everything seemed so much simpler.  Honest write. xo ;)
