Life is good! Life is inspirational!

Addictive Trade Off

Dopamine triggers
Pulling you in
With addictive endeavour
To achieve and then win
An opioid hit
When you’re lured and enticed
By drugs, sex and booze
Or the roll of a dice

Though why you react
Cave in and enrol
To hedonic pleasure
When that isn’t the goal
To be ensnared by a craving
Means the system seems stuffed
Hell bent on a path
That will destruct soon enough

Yet maybe in time
We’ll look back; understand
If this trade with addiction
Is all out of hand
Or see through the gamble
To then comprehend
If there’s a reason at all
To this self-serving end
