Soothing the Pain

What if we want to say
Just for today
It’s too much 
All the stuff 
It’s too tough 
The current 
The past

Why do the tears continue to fall, 
the pain have to last
I’ve felt it all
Why can’t we just get through it fast?
Caught in the net
Of so many regrets 
It just hurts 
Scared of making things worse 

The alcohol voice
now sees a chance
to “soothe” 
To make it’s move
Oh just f@#k off wine 
Stop your lying 
I can see you’re trying 
You won’t make things fine 
I know 
if I choose booze 
I’ll surely lose
You’re just wasting your time 
And mine 
I won’t change my mind 
It’s set
What part of that don’t you get?

If water is like our mind
Do you find 
When alcohol
causes the water to be agitated 
It becomes difficult to see?
I get upset and frustrated 
But if we allow it to settle 
The answer becomes clear
For my problems I know 
More solutions come near

So really AF wine for me is fine 
It won’t mess with my mind 
And with less agitation 
Comes less frustration 
When solutions are near
I feel more in control 
And there’s much less fear
