to rely
Needing assistance
Just to get by.

It's taken once,
twice, thrice
Go Ask Alice
she'll explain the vice.

It is more then a pill,
it's a seed, a spark.
Illuminate the world,
and you'll never want it dark.

We as people
depend not on the drug.
But the prescription,
to cure the bug.

From one to another,
causing sleep, curing pain.
In the world of the twenty-first,
this is our cocaine.

Note: Go Ask Alice is a book about drug users, it's a good read.
