    One Sip

    His brain always be doin this to him
    why the hell he gotta think so much?
    he wants answers
    there are no answers
    no one's here
    nothing's clear
    he's all alone

    so he takes one sip
    and he tastes the problems
    dissolve on the tip of his tongue
    he promises himself just one sip
    but his problems need more than that

    he downs a shot
    throat burns hot
    but his brain doesnt stop

    all he wants is
    peace

    he gots to stop
    this aint no way to handle ****

    so down it go
    downt the drain
    along with his troubles.

    PS: this is what i feel all alcoholics should do. just pour it down the drain b/c it only makes the problems worse. like my mama always says... when there are troubles. all you gotta think is, 'this too shall pass'
    love you all.

    I really like this, but sadly for some people it isn't that easy. But once they get to that point people may realize not drinking is a better solution to their problems.
