"Shoplifting Philosophy"

Don’t use drugs and shoplift is my philosophy,

take heed or you will experience pain and misery...

Shoplifting is not an innocent crime,

it will lead to doing time...

Things can happen that you least expect,

like putting people in danger and having a car wreck...

Please take heed to my philosophy,

I learned the hard way and caused myself misery...

Find a job and work honestly for your money,

or you will end up in prison and that ain’t funny...

If you are reading this poem and you have a problem

with drugs & shoplifting, please stop now before it turns into

something devastating.

 

Dear Reader of this poem, using drugs and shoplifting to
support my habit lead to my incarceration. If you know
someone or are someone that is caught in the broken cycle
of addiction there is hope. Please reach out to me, I would
love to share my experience, strength, and hope, with you.
