I Don't Drink Anymore


Oh please don't interrupt me

When I'm in my crisis,

And thanks to an unfair workplace

I am even more sober now;

Thank you dad for never knowing me

Thank you mom for being dead,

For you really showed me what it's like

To be a functioning human being

Oh let's not be oppressed here

I'm sure dead people have something better to do

Than to listen to one's problems, LOL

I can't pretend that I am ahead

Because I am not;

The foolishness perceives me to be a clown

And philosophies say that I am

And we are all in limbo here

Just look at the white horse in suffering

I want to go to the bathroom

Just to flush down my fears,

I'm sure these toilets have enough crap to deal with!

Oh the Rose Marie of it all

For she is quite the catch

Doesn't it feel like heaven right now

Just to feel some solitude,

And just to have some peace of mind?

Oh hell hath no solitude

Like a solitude scorned...

And for reasons unknown, I like being sober

Don't you?

  • Comment from author about the poem: Being sober is a powerful thing...even though, sometimes, it is a battle that can be unbearable. I've had many drunken moments, I've felt shame, I've felt extreme embarrassment, and I had days I wanted to die. But now, I can look back and say...I CONQUERED THE BEAST! Now all I have to do is believe in myself every day and keep on writing my poetry. Don't let anybody tell you that you're not enough. You are enough. No matter what we go through in life, it is important to kick the fake people out of your life...AND TELL THEM TO KICK ROCKS! It always feels good to eliminate the excess baggage. Thank you for reading.
