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.

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?

so true. I like poems that can make universal emotion out of individual acts or moments.

(the repetition of each day/all day kind of stopped me up, though. it's such a short poem repetition might not work too well.)

Deep man, deep, people always make there pain sound sappy in there poems, this is straight forward and without the taint of cliches and bs.
