Alcoholism

By , Briarcliff Manor, NY
What do you do when you constantly see someone you love, hurting themselves?
When showing emotion may be too difficult for them.
Turning to the bottle to drown away their pain.
Every day I have to think about this possibly being the last time I see her.
Always the constant fear of losing my best friend.
The one person I trust the most
No one knows what it is like to go home every day after school cheerleading to a mother who is no longer sober
Having to stay out of the way, let her be, talk to her later
Acting like nothings wrong trying to pretend
I really don’t hate her;
I just hate what she is doing to herself
Our positions are reversed she’s acting like an irresponsible child, and I’m the worried mother
When really all I want is a mother who cares
I will never choose to go down the path that you have chosen
You will never see me break down in the ways you have
I am stronger today than I have ever been before so I thank you
But I will NEVER BE LIKE YOU!
