The Empty Glass -by Shauni Cooper
The glass is empty
The happiness is gone
Grief now slithers within me
Is this what I look forward to?
Momentary bliss that ends in sheer disappointment?
I made a promise
Now my veins contain sorrow
One sip can't hurt me
I lied to myself
Giving in, I swallow my conscience
I need to be happy, if only for just a moment
I lie awake in bed
Remorse coursing through me
When was my last decent night of sleep?
All I want is to be happy
Hangovers, headaches, and judgments
My daily routine, schedule
It has to stop
If I am ever to be proud of myself
Rebirth, a new me emerges
I kept my promise
The empty glass no longer holds me captive
A new chapter in my life begins…
