Flip Off the Switch
A long time it has been,
Since my belly sank down;
Purging the alcohol all around –
Ceasing my master’s mercy; deep in sin.
Lord knows I’ll be dead soon.
Drinking myself to sleep,
Haunting the hood as a creep
Never to rise earlier than noon.
A wretched fool I am; reckless.
Mother thinks I’m dead,
Father wants me gone.
Perchance, in me will awaken a change; selfless.
Abandoning addiction; I’ll have sobriety, instead.
Flip off the switch, and turn the light on.
