Some problems are bigger than us.


What lies deep within?
deserving to be killed
you drown with liquor
and numb with illicit drugs
yet the pain thrives and remains

Oh so true. Alcohol and drugs do not heal the pain and just make things worse. Yes. Some problems are bigger than us and we need help to get through them. Sometimes its hard to reach out for that help. Sometimes our hands remain remain painfully empty when we do. Sometimes help needs to come from beyond humanity. May Light shine into the person this was written about.

Very true, some choose to run away from pain by adding more pain. they refuse to face the (Wo)Man in the mirror! Very wise words here Jazz...

Great write Jazz. You hit the nail on the head "problems bigger than us" sometimes can't be solved by us alone. Luckily we live in a part of the world that does offer help.

The way some choose to deal with the problems at hand, very sad, yet sometimes true....

Be always safe,

This sounds familiar to a lot of people but I know that Liquor can not kill or wash away misery, if anything it makes matters worst. What kills misery is having a friend who is willing to listen and help you dump the added baggage making you realize, right next door to misery lives happiness and most of us are blind to it. Thank you for sharing your words Lavendar.

most do do this but i quit drinking 20 years back. i take life on the chin, but I always tell my wife if I was a drinking man, i'd be drunk as all outdoors, great down to earth verse
Reviewed by Elizabeth Price 5/7/2008
Boy did you get this problem right. Short and sweet and straight to the point. Misery loves company and likes to be accompanied by any numbing agent around. I've worked through some of my misery so I feel better but still this is sometimes a problem. I'd rather take a pill than feel the pain. When the pain in almost constant what is one to do? Excellent write. Liz
