The Devil’s Juice

The Devils Juice short poem

Photo by Daniel E Lee

This awakening has woken me
Had days and days to think
The route of all my evils
Has been the devil’s drink
It’s time for me to turn my back
Be strong and to resist
That deadly juice that ruined me
This plea I do insist
The ones I love have said all along
You must escape this devil
For it has hurt them, every one
In new life I will revel.

I'm a 47 year old with two sons, Sam (22) and Jim (19). I love poetry, music and fashion and work for a local company as a Finance Manager.My brother and I are both on the road to sobriety, after some very ugly and interesting recent post 'The Sad Old Drunk Without a Head' is pretty much based on how we recall our boozy experiences!My brother (Lee) and I are currently embarking on a journey - 'The Picture Poet Society', which aims to capture our thoughts and feelings in pictures and poetry..we then hope to co-write a book on our 'Road to Sobriety'..which we believe will be inspiring to others that wish for a life without watch this space.I hope you enjoy my work and am always pleased to hear feedback..good or bad..mistakes will be made along the's the only way we can strive to improve.Thanks!
