This week on The Billy Butler Show Radio Merseyside : Friday 15th October 2010. I will be performing a poem I wrote about addiction, entitled "I Am Addiction" which tackles some serious issues, but on a lighter note I will also perform a funny poem - based on a true story of a young man who went sleep walking in the nude whilst staying in a hotel. I hope you enjoy them.
I was inspired to write the "I Am Addiction" poem after doing some workshops in a homeless hostel. I met a young man who had been sucessful in his career......until he became friends with addiction. He came from a wealthy family and had a really good upbringing. Could have done anything he wanted.......a few weeks later he was dead. It's scary how addiction can take control of ANYONE, thats what I was trying to get across.
