RP-1

I am addicted.
I am addicted to striving for the best.
In my addiction, my life is filled with
hard work and no time.
In my addiction I am glad to feel busy,
because the days go by quickly.

I am addicted.
I am addicted to proving myself.
In my addiction, I hate to think about
the past and what lies there.
In my addiction, the real me becomes
strong and confident in the future.

I am addicted.
I am addicted to being faithful and truthful.
In my addiction, betrayal comes in the form
of lies and hatred in the ones you love.
In my addiction, I struggle to understand
why I put so much effort into it.

I am addicted.
I am addicted to the ones I love.
In my addiction, I am hiding my sorrow
and the pain all this brings.
In my addiction, I’m in the constant battle
with time.
