Down and out

I have sampled being at the bottom
The seedy underbelly of life
Where people steal to make ends meet
And drug taking is rife
I have lost a friend who chased the dragon
But the dragon swallowed him up
I have seen the faces of addiction
And the faces were devoid of love.
I have been to the bottom and lost it all
But I bounced back again
Life can knock me down as much as it likes
But I always get back up in the end.
I been to the bottom where life is hard
And people lose themselves in drink
Been close to that a few times my friend but stepped back from the brink.
I been to the bottom and I’ve seen despair etched in faces of the poor
Of those who have given up on life
And who’s bedroom is a door
Sleeping in boxes and doorways
In an overwhelming smell of piss
I’ve been to the bottom and will tell you my friend this is not an acceptable way to live.
