You See A ‘Junkie’ But I See A Future Success Story

You see heroin, I see low self-esteem. You see cocaine, I see fear. You see alcohol, I see social anxiety.

You see track marks, I see depression. You see a junkie, I see someone’s son. You see a prostitute, I see someone’s daughter caught in addiction. You see self-centeredness, I see the disease.

You see a pill head, I see over prescribing of opiates.

You see someone unwilling to change, I see someone hasn’t connected with them yet. You see denial, I see someone hurting. You see someone nodding out, I see God showing us they need help.

You see the end, I see the beginning. You see a dope fiend, I see a future success story.

You see them, I see me.
