The art of growing up,
is to pour shots of whiskey                                            
into your coffee in the morning
to make it through
the day.
when all you want to do
is lie in bed
instead,
but there’s nothing
beautiful
about that
either.
"Liquor is one way out an'death's the other.” 
― Tennessee WilliamsCat on a Hot Tin Roof

its short because i dont know what else to say besides the fact that im disgusted that it's the fucking truth.
its a fragment of sleep deprivation, non fiction topped off with self hate,
aren't i just a bundle of  fun?

The beauty of poetry is the ability to express and purge one's emotions, and then move on with life in a more constructive way.... I find the acknowledgement of those feelings is a beginning....but then you have to move up and out from there if things are going to get better... although I will say and Irish Coffee does have it's virtues, in context....although the heaviness you describe might be better served by straight espresso and some time away from it all  (this is by no means an attempt to poke fun or make light of your circumstances, I hope I don't offend you.) ... It's a good piece, a tough read in some respects but honest. For what it's worth, there is light at the end of the tunnel, you just have to get around the bend to see it.....I won't say this is beautiful... I can't because it's not meant to be... but I can appreciate your honesty, and the vulnerability and humility it takes to post something like this... and to deal with the way people respond to it.  I'm hoping after a while this poem won't be an accurate portrayal, but a window you can shutter behind you to a past that no longer holds you.  Congrats on the DD.
