Rolling in the drink,
making a stinking mess of
life, family everything important.
How to get dry?

Sober, tipsy, drunk, blackout,
the first step away from sobriety
always turns into a full sprint
right back to the bottle.

How does one find sobriety
in the face of commercials,
liquor stores on every street,
and friends drinking at all turns?

The challenge of sobriety
is summed up in one word;
It is far easier to find a reason
to drink
than to not drink,
sobriety so much more difficult
than drunken revelry.

Help me find my path
to a life worth living.
