Today

Today
I’ve realized
What I’m not
And what I’ll never be.

Today
The present
And the future
Stood before me,
Leaving me to cry
Into the past.

Today
I left, retreated
With my tears to bed
And dreamt of alcohol.

  2. Self-discovery can be not so much fun at times, Glad the alcohol was in his dreams otherwise he would have more to deal with. Really good write. Sad but sometimes true.

    1. Yes, there's restraint in dealing with the saddness.

  3. No, Ben Ditty sounds resigned, but as usual written with
    economy and quiet emotion.
