What has it become of us?
Where’s our future?
Where does our future lie?
Where’s our future as substance abusers?
Why have we allowed substances to control us?
Sniffers, drinkers and smokers!
Where is our future?
You call yourselves 2000s!
The generation with no respect!
The generation that is controlled by substances!
You cannot resist peer pressure!
Have become your hobbies!
Where is your future with substances?
You allow the substances to control you!
Your behaviour changes!
You lack respect for elders,
You are in and out of the rehabs,
You trouble your parents,
Because of substances!
Where does your future lies?
You, substance abusers!
Have you thought of killer diseases?
Cancers, heart diseases, kidney failures,
You have become their customers!
Why destroy your life?
Why destroy your future?
Your life is precious!
Love yourself and,
Stop, drug and substance abuse
