It’s up to You

Sober hero of the day

A life like this 
You don’t want
to miss a single second 
Happy moments beckon 

By choosing to be free and present 
You can really lessen 
“Sleeping ” through the good times
you could otherwise miss 

A kind word or gesture, 
Shared memories,
a first kiss 
It could be a wedding,
a play not attended 
a heart not mended
As you were far too hungover 
To make the effort to go over
To a family event

Or you said things not meant
Does that make sense?

Why wait?!
Life won’t just fall in our lap
We can’t access it’s joy
by opening a cap
On a bottle or two
It’s up to you

Who’s in control
of the life your living? 
Are you giving
all that you could be giving?

If alcohol is the real boss
That could be your loss

Why not decide 
No longer to hide
Behind the “wine” glasses
you’re wearing 
They’re too foggy!

And see more of the life
you could be living 
As your best self,
And not groggy 🙂🌞🌻⏰
