This caught my eye. I could see words written on the paper, but didn’t think too much about it. When I returned to my bike, it was still there. Curiosity got me, and I picked it up. The first line shocked me. I read on in disbelief about the hardships this person has endured because of their addiction. I felt so bad for this person, despite the fact that they chose to try heroin. I felt I should share this letter with the world, in hopes that it can prevent someone else from going down this horrible path. If nothing else, it makes you realize that your life isn’t so bad after all. If this doesn’t make you NOT want to try heroin, nothing will.

A tenant moved out & left their whole life behind, from baby books to artworks, love letters to random musings. Drawers had old lottery tickets & clippings of hair, film reels & broken earrings-the detritus of a life. So, as Rod Serling would have said, “Submitted for your approval, one envelope with handwriting…random lovelorn musings or something else entirely.”
