Random Poem:


The tears are coming down my face
Like a hurricane raging
I can't stop crying
For my problems are just beginning
I try to think of something pleasant
But that ain't helping
So much bad memories, so many mistakes
Why did I have to be so stupid?
I ask myself everyday
I was lost in a world I could not manage.
I was lost in the world with
No help, no guidance
I was an alcoholic at a very young age.
My family is disgusted by me,
My so-called friends encourage me
The tears are coming down again
Hence I turn to the lover of the night
Whichever bottle that might be
That particular night
