An Alcoholic Poem by Daniel Bernard Kelleher

An Alcoholic

Rating: 5.0

Funny the way things turn out
Where had your dreams got lost
You had your life before you
Knowing now this is your lot
Aspirations you had many
Though you knew what lied ahead
Life had many twists and turns
Its here you made your bed
Working in a dead beat job
Your future gone astray
Choices you made in life
You rue them everyday
Your dreams slowly faded
Aspirations out the door
Taking that first drink
My life ruined for evermore
