Sobriety

Twenty months without alcohol

a couple years more than that

without drugs

but, I’m starting to think

that maybe human beings evolved

the need to get fucked up

because of how fucked up

the world is.

Maybe getting drunk

or high

is what keeps us sane.

About soitgoes1984

I was born and raised on land stolen from the Pocumtuc. I now live on a small island in the middle of the Pacific ocean, on land that was stolen more recently, from the Hawaiians. I am addict, struggling to kick the habit of fossil fuel. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.
