Poem: Addiction is the Solution

Addiction is the solution
What then is the problem?
Addiction is a lack of self-love
Let us teach love
Addiction is fear
Let us not fear addiction
Let us work on the solution
Let the solution be our work
Let our addiction be love

About the poem:

Why has addiction been such a popular sport through man’s history, though it is obviously damaging? That is basically the definition of addiction: repeatedly doing something damaging to oneself. Addiction is a way of solving a problem, of handling some emotional or physical imbalance that demands attention. If I’m overeating when I’m depressed, the overeating is the most effective solution I’ve developed to handle my depression. Learning how to love myself and take care of myself is the long-term solution I seek, and it is self love.
