Favorite Quote:
With a little love, And some tenderness, We'll walk upon the water, We'll rise above the mess.


I’m an alcoholic.

Its easier to admit when I’m

the influence.






under

When I cant really feel anything.

I’m an alcoholic.

I don’t like to say it.

But they saying admitting you have a problem

Is the first step.


Well,
I’m an alcoholic.

And I have a problem.

Half of me wants to get better

The other half just wants to






keep







going.


To keep getting that heavy feeling.


To keep laughing



To keep
D R I N K I N G.

I’m an alcoholic.

And I don’t think I can stop.

Nor do I want to stop, its too hard.


Its so easy to just take a sip, and let it







sink








in.


Its so easy to just let yourself feel good.


But that makes it worse.

Resisting the temptation is what matters,


What makes you
S T R O N G E R.








But
I’m an alcoholic.

I’m not a strong person,


I’m weak.



Maybe I should just






give







up.


But everyone keeps telling me I’m a

Strong person.



And living up to their standards

Makes

Me

A

Walking

Disappointment.

And when you’re an alcoholic,
Disappointment and drinking go hand in hand.

The author's comments:
Again, the format of this poem is VERY important. Ive been having a hard time dealing with drugs and alcahol, and writing this piece helped me. i hope i can touch someone else when they read this, and hope that theres someone else that understands what im going through. that im not just some reckless teenager partying every weekend. drinking is a part of me now, and it helps me cope with life.
