This is dedicated to all the fools who says that we should just "let them die".
I loved shooting drugs in public places.
I didn't not give two fucks if I shot up in front of your kids.
I would lick the blood to taste the last bit of dope.
I would carry rigs in my pocket like my life depended on it.
I've shot up with water from a puddle.
I've walked all over the city with no shoes high on meth.
I've turned a trick on soiled newspaper in the rain.
I've cried over spilled dope. Never over my choices.
Until I did.
One day, I imagined something different for myself.
Never, ever tell me there is no hope.
I am living proof.
I am a mother, an employee, and activist, a wife.
People love me.
I rescue cats.
I help others.
Fuck your judgment.
Let me live.
