The Feared Path to Serenity.

Take me away,
To my mind's eye.
Take me away,
To where dreams fly.
Fly me home to where the heart is,
All the way back, so I can feel like a kid.
The adult life, I can not cope,
I need my fix, I need my dope.
Like a shot in the arm,
A numbness in my brain.
Just the right pill to kill the pain.
The pain that follows me through life,
Nagging at my mind,
Keeping my secrets from light.
The light, so warm and soft,
A resemblance like nothing I've bought.
All the money I've wasted buying fantasies to drink,
To say nothing of the time I've lost-
It's too much to bare,
To think of all I've done.........
So, take me away,
If just for today.
For when tomorrow comes,
I will once again run.
Running away, till I learn to pray,
Pray to the light that kills my disease, stops my suffering, I beg you please.
Save my tortured soul,
I have no where left to go.
Surround me with your warmth,
Your love, your peace,
Ease my pain, let my anger sleep.

Gosh, that's a very good poem. I wish I could say "Pull your socks up, man" but sometimes there isn't the inner strength to do even that. That I know. I don't know what horrors cause a person to take permanent refuge in alcohol or how hereditary alcoholism works.
