Red wine

Red wine

A Poem by EileenMarie
"

Why does sobriety mean antisocial to me?

"

Looking back has me mourning the future

The present boasts sobriety and not much more

How does one find joy in that culture?

Looking back has me mourning the future

A foreigner in my own life, a misadventure

To think fate sealed with something I abhor

Looking back has me mourning the future

The present boasts sobriety and not much more

as Sheryl Crow sang..."i'm a stranger in my own life"
do we ever really know ourselves?
and can anything or anyone really make us feel content....
this is really a potent write, EileenMarie.
