The Victor's Crown


My love affair with alcohol

has been for fifty years and more

My first drink I can still recall

those feelings never felt before

The warm fuzzy after glow

that I would never want to end

The worries it would overthrow

I’d finally found a friend

A drink won’t do me any harm

when things are bad it helps me cope

Anxiety it helps to calm

it’s my burning light of hope

I didn’t know as time went bye

and the hold it would have on me

For all the times it made me cry

it had become my enemy.

It was my choice to pick it up

it can be mine to put it down

The road I’m on I won’t give up

it’s the victor who wears the crown.
