“You soon find, you have few choices”…

Many are the voices,
talking in his mind…

Vicious and destructive,
angry and unkind…

Always pointing out,
all his many faults…

Where he could do better,
it’s a constant assault…

That drives him to drink,
all this madness away…

Opening a new bottle,
each and every day…

A sip as he awakes,
a shot during work…

And when nobody notices,
he allows himself a smirk…

He knows it’s a problem,
but drowns those thoughts away…

Buring Devil’s deep inside,
to face some other day…

Infecting blood with alcohol,
poisoning his brain…

He can’t remember a time,
he felt sober and quite sane…

And strong enough to fight,
the demons in control…

Who weaken his defences,
whilst feasting on his soul…

Leaving blurred memories,
of what went on before…

Images of his childhood,
so painful and so raw…

But he has the anaesthetic,
that quickly numbs his pain…

And it’s easier than fighting,
through the wind and rain…

So he drowns out the voices,
that stalk his weakened mind…

Living in a drunken haze,
leaving real life behind…
