We Drink to be Free

We Drink to Be Free

We Drink to Be Wild

To break down the protective barrier

To open our bodies and hearts and minds

To connect with friends

To connect with family

To connect with ourselves

But drinking enslaves us

Those of us who do it with a singular passion

Those of us who become addicted

Slowly bit by bit

Year by year it wears us down

It becomes a ball and chain that we drag behind us

Our voices are dulled by shame and doubt and insecurity

But it doesn’t have to be that way

You can cut that chain

It’s never too late

Your fire may be soft and warm or it may be a raging inferno

but it can only grow if you stop wasting energy

on the drink/drunk/regret routine

Pour enough alcohol on that baby and it’ll flash up in a fury then die quickly

Sober I AM a steady glow

a stable flame

and sometimes a raging inferno of creative energy

but I am NEVER extinguished

Today I will not drink.
