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.

Julia,

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