Finding Myself

Finding Me… Alcohol-Free

2 comments

I’m somewhere in-between
Don’t want to go out
Happy to stay in
Don’t feel sociable without booze
But don’t want to give in
I no longer see wine as a win

So what will help
What will set my soul on fire
After a day that’s either boring,
stressful
or just dire?

I no longer want to take it down to the wire
Don’t want to dance
Or exercise
There’s a surprise
How can I get back my perky ways
More lively days?

I’ve lost me
For longer than today
Why?
I just want to cry
I need to sort it all out
Resolve what’s gone wrong
Over time
I no longer want to scream and shout
Over craving the wine

Ok that’s good
But it’s been taken away
What can I replace it with today?
Don’t want more cake
Or cups of tea
I’m clawing my way out
Trying to be free

I’m gasping for breath
I just want to be me
But who is that now really?
Time to discover who I am alcohol free
