Living & dying with the haunting ghosts of addiction...

I Knew Better.

by Dean Kuch

~I Knew Better~



I knew better, why must I go?

Still haunted by this pain and woe;

 thus, carried gaunt through graveyard gates,

 purgatory, my soul awaits...


Yes, I was bold and stupid brave,

peer pressure pushed me to the grave;

I knew that I could never win —

now I'll be buried with my sin...
