Alcoholic’s Prayer


Heavenly Father


Please give me faith

That i can sober

live through a day


Please give me love that lingers

So i don’t have to drink up

the emptiness


Please give me courage

when pain and despair

push me towards the bottle 


Please give me strength

to unlock this chain


I want to show the dearest ones

how much i truly love them


And if I fail


Please pull me up


Don’t let me drown to the bottom

That is so on the nail Julia. I have tried to focus on life through the bottom of a bottle and it doesn't work. Great poem.

A poem which is honest as I have been there and fear going back. Bless you for this poem.
