that built happiness once

the pills the smoke

the booze

that built happiness once

no longer does

but to give them up

seems the scariest thing

you’ll ever do

but you do

you have to

you can no longer afford to go on

feeding the habits

organising the drugs

buying the bottles

so you let go

for sanity for living

unchained from what once

was liberating

for what else is there

to do?
