Opioids Slave? Hell No!

Got me some bad back pain!
Can’t bend, at times I feel my life’s in vain.

Friends tell me “take some opioids to numb the pain” they are insane!
Doctor says “kill it with Fentanyl” is he for real?

Casualties overdose,
mistaken or for deliberate suicide, feeling forsaken.
Drug lords enrich coffers while Mr, Miss and Mrs in cheap coffins waste away.

Painkiller glitters, but is far from gold. It may hold up my back, a fast pain killer
but sure to finish me, a slow guardian killer to a point of no return.

It’s a known felon, unstoppable.
A marksman freely licensed to kill as it schemes to populate hell.

Opioids, away from me!
I’m as angry as hell!
I resist you,
with prayer?
natural remedies?
All the above,
backache and all!

I wrote this poem on 28th Oct 2018 inspired when I read this article
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-45984843
about a woman Maddie who died of an overdose after years of addiction to an Opioid (a painkiller drug). My sincere condolences to her family.

My prayer and hope is that many will resist the urge to accept offers to take drugs of any kind to ease pain, depression or just to fit in with friends who take drugs.

Hi, pleased to meet you! I am Deborah Esther, an Inspirational writer, author, speaker and transformational strategist. I am first and foremost passionate about humanity; yes human beings and our mental, psychological and physical health and how human beings impact the big wide world in a variety of ways. I write about everything and anything that I feel strongly about. I do so from the perspective of one who has experienced certain things in life and observed others go through. It is also from the perspective of my Christian faith as a teacher and minister of the Gospel. We project who we are to the world and who we are affects how we relate to one another, so I conclude that I want to be the best version of who I am predestined to be, so as to make a difference to one or more people. My mission is to aid others have the same outlook in life; develop and demonstrate compassion through engaging with causes that matter and are important to humanity. I express myself through writing articles, quotes, poetry, spoken word... I pray and reflect on biblical scriptures which I may share. I have developed self assessment/potential realisation and therapeutic creative writing programmes for workshops. On my blog, I also share articles, videos and quotes from other sources..., some may ask for donations, fundraising or volunteering in worthy causes. Let’s play our part for a better world; be daily transformed so as to be world changers. I also hope to read and learn from you all in our inspirational blogosphere 😃 God bless Deborah Esther x
