The Magic is Within Us All

Evicting the Wine Witch :

Get away from victim mentality
It curbs authenticity 
Gives the Wine Witch
permission and authority 
To try to ruin your life, oh boy

Do you want to hand over your capacity for joy?
To someone who doesn’t care
Delights when you despair in

It’s not easy to see
What a slippery slope 
Wine can be
It crept up on me

It made the wine witch very happy, not so much me
I know 
There is another way though 
A much more productive 
Way to live

As to the wine witch?
you can remove her power
Shower her with disdain 
Make it rain on HER dreams,
reduce her allure
Wine isn’t the cure

The magic is within all of us
It’s the inner strength we all possess 
Once you find it
and access it
You’ll accept nothing less
Than how you should be treated
You’ll less likely be defeated

This you’ll be able
to slowly recognise and tell 
And then the wine witch?
She can go to hell!

Ganging up Against the Alcohol Terrorist :

My Nemesis was the alcohol terrorist
There isn’t a party he’d have missed
But then there was always an excuse
To bring him along & all let loose
Seemed like a great idea at the time
He promised all would be just fine 
Just 2 my dear , don’t be a bore 
Next thing I remember I’m on the floor
The morning after he’s gone & I’m left 
To mop up the chaos, feeling bereft 
The guilt and shame I’ll never forget 
The blackouts, scars , hate & regret 
The stony silence from the love of my life 
This terrorist made me a deceitful wife 
Join us today in refusing to go 
To that party that took us lower than low ….
