Someone asked me to write a poem about Alcohol. The reason was that young people do not realize how Serious dringkins Alcohol can be. The goal in the poem is to have a Conversation between someone, the only one person I could have that conversation with was trapped with me is my Shadow.

Me And My Shadow's Journey

Me And My Shadow staggering down the street
Since I am the Shadow, my Master enslaves me
Whatever he wishes to do
I must follow in his footsteps
Since he calls Whiskey his companion and Indulges delightfully Smiling
As he begins to laugh loudly after
Taking another big gulp
He looks at me and says
"What is you looking at Shadow?'
Ha! Ha! Ha! Want some?
Then he asked me, "How do I get home?
"Where am I?"
Now, I know that your are hallucinating
And Intoxication has set in
Your mind at this time is incoherent and they Have totally imbalanced your visual abilities
But hey you enjoy Sweet Names like Drunk
Boozer, Lush, and Alcoholic
Driving is out of the question you are Delusional!
Your brain is at a shut down
You may not realize that your brain cells are Vanishing daily because of the
Torture that you chosen for you
Still, all you say is "Just another drink"
"Just another drink I need to function!"
Your poor heart is Malfunctioning, and
Your liver is scarred
Me And My Shadow use to have fun
Without that liquor
So you think that you have many problems and
Escaping in a bottle is the answer
Facing Reality is not a road that is always easy
But having Faith in yourself and and keeping
Your dreams alive is a good place to start
So therefore you can achieve your True Destiny
Drinking can tear down your body tissues and
Then you decide to Binge it could just Kill you
Your life is not the only one affected
By your decisions
Drink Driving & Under the influence of Alcohol
For so-called fun daring circumstances
It can have fatally consequences along the way
Don't allow alcohol to imprison
Your Mind, Heart, and Spirit
Being Dependent on Alcohol can lead up to
Alcoholic Psychosis and Wernick's Encephalopathy
It is Severe Mental Disorders like
Pathologic Intoxication, Delirium Tremens,
Acute Hallucinosis, and Korsakoff's Psychosis
Brain damage characteized this
Footsteps are yours to create for your
Journey of Tomorrows
Don't walk in the Shadows
Walk in the Light
