the glass is……

someone once said
unlike marijuana or psychedelics
alcohol is for those in pain
maybe so, but i think
a certain amount of pain
is necessary
to see life as it really is
to cope and accept,
to grow
and maybe to change
perhaps, that’s why I drink
for a new perspective
not negative and downtrodden
simply realistic
but after awhile it gets
we are reminded of the things we miss
in those quiet and blissful moments
and we are goaded to change
just a little bit
into something
not so terrible
and hopefully a little more evolved
