Cough Cough Cough
Thats how it always starts,
the pain, the rush, the mind numbing calm
its what they say it gives them,
But all i see is inedvitable death.
You take a drag once,
and now your stuck.
Lungs inhaling long painful drags for your comfort,
But your hurting them,
Im always telling you to quit,
But you just brush me off like the fags you smoke.
One, Two, Three, Four, Five
All in one damn day.
Thats one too many I say
but you just dont listen.
Your just filling your guts and throwing it up,
in the next breath.
Like Get Scared said
"sticks and stones may break my bones but anything you say could only fuel my lungs"
Well hell my words only go through one ear and out the other,
Never down your throat,
Where all the smoke lies.
Cough cough cough
Is how it may have started, but,
It will end with a mighty pain.

Wrote this for my uncle to maybe enlighten him to what he is doing to not only himself but those around him that care.

Well that's too bad. As a former smoker myself, it is difficult but not impossible, especially after seeing all these commercials about the effects of smoking. Keep trying hon.
