English Poetry

 Once I was feeling low,

So decided to get ‘high’.

I pulled up my socks,

Had Scotch ‘on the rocks’.

 

One peg led to the other,

Going from bad to worse.

The world seemed in a maze

I was lost in spirits and haze.

 

Free glasses with every bottle,

Fake friends were an ‘add-on’.

Drowning my sorrows with every sip,

Burning inside but pretending hip.

 

Then the reality dawned on me,

I kicked the bottle and ruminated.

Life itself is a cocktail of emotions.

With its ebbs and flows,

Like a roller-coaster ride.

 

I repented and cursed myself,

Throwing away the cloak of self-deception.

I stopped getting ‘high’,

And resolved to get ‘higher’ in life.

    A very beautiful meaningful poem, indeed.
    Nice movement in the poem from confusion to realization.
    Liked immensely
    The last 4 lines are fantastic in the context of the poem but feel like suggesting a small addition…

    “I repented and cursed myself,
    Then forgave myself with a promise &
    Throwing away the cloak of self-deception.
    I stopped getting ‘high’,
    And resolved to get ‘higher’ in life.”
