To Set Myself Free

A Poem by Amanda Mae MacInnis

Satisfies my craving that yearns to be fed
The alcohol that numbs my mind
That leaves my body at ease
Affect my thoughts and I drop to my knees
The drugs that make me lose my mind
That take away the pain
Leave me feeling helpless
And somewhat less than sane
The wasted time I spend looking for true love
Is merely reality giving me a shove
What I choose to do now is all up to me
I've been trying all these ways
To set myself free
