Put the Bottle Down

Put the bottle down.
You don’t need the drink tonight.
Don’t you cower from your fears
It’s time to stand up
And fight.

Put the bottle down.
It’s useless to even think
That your life would
Easier
With just another drink.

Put the bottle down.
Don’t waste your life away
By living in fear of
Emotions
Every single day.

Put the bottle down.
It’s time to be a valiant
Your life is too precious to
Throw away.
You’ve got too much talent.

Put the bottle down
And look into my eyes.
Promise me you
Won’t be
The one who wants to die.

Put the bottle down
And let me take your hand.
Together we’ll fight
The monsters.
Together, we’ll stand.

Love this! I think it's very powerful and well-written. It was a gripping poem, and kept me going to the end. Fabulous job!
I only hope that if you wrote this to someone, you succeed in convincing him/her to stop drinking.

By the way , I'm not sure if it's because you don't have a user, but when you comment on my poetry, I can't click your name to access your work.
