Addiction (Yet To Be Rebroken)

What`s more powerful than a child`s disappointment?
It shatters the heart that you have failed them
And that everything they were ever proud of you for
Has died and left them feeling lost
If you can't do something
What's the chances of them breaking an obsession?
Could they do it?
Or would they follow your footsteps and fail as well?
By a child, I meant me
I was so proud of you
When I thought you broke the addiction
And crushed it under your strength
You almost seemed mighty
And an inspiration to any future troubles I may face
But as you broke down
And let desire take control of you
You lost that
You lost any inspiration
The water washed away the footsteps
I was setting myself to follow
And now, you are left to face my sorrow and disappointment in you
How can you tell me
You are so hurt that you've let me down
When you continue to pain me everytime I see it happening
Time and time again?
You say you care about me
But you're killing me slowly, from the inside out
How can you say you want to watch me grow
When you are throwing away life like it doesn't matter?
I was just so proud of you
And now I can honestly say, I am thwarted
If that doesn't push you to beat down the addiction again
Then I don't know what will
But, I still believe in you
And I just know you can do it
If you just tried that much harder, and pushed yourself that much more
I want to be proud again
I want you to be around for more years to come
And I know,
This addiction can be rebroken
