Challenge Of My Life - Poem by Duncan Stephen

Started in my teens not very nice it seems
Went of the rails, blaming everyone else for my ails
Something about a horse comes to mind
Leading it to water and making it drink

Did the horse have anything about my ails
After all you can't make anyone do anything
I think that I was quite capable of drowning myself
Or should I say I tried to do so

For years and years I struggled
But the demon drink would not let me go
Did not know where I was half the time
Very worrying for me and mine

Eventually saw the light at the end of the tunnel
Asked for help, did not struggle
Problem solved maybe?
