This poem connects to Romeo and Juliet since love made Romeo and Juliet do many insane things like taking poison, gun fights,etc and how alcohol made my dad do insane things.
There’s different kinds of love,
But the love that makes you go crazy is addiction.
Alcohol causes addiction
That addiction then causes violence.
People get too hooked up,
Alcohol causes people to do
Many people drink for different reasons but
When they get addicted,
There’s an anchor holding them back.
He is addicted to alcohol and when he drinks he doesn’t think straight.
Everyday my father loses something,
Everyday he’s lost,
Everyday he craves more.
The first time my father was arrested
Was when I was 3 years old,
I was crying and yelling at the stairs because my dad was hitting my mom.
As time went by my father kept on drinking and driving,
His addiction made him brainless
He was never thinking at all.
Then when my dad was arrested again I was with him and almost got taken away by the police
It felt like I was being banished and never going to see my mom or my sister again.
My dad never thought about anyone,
The only thing he cared about was beer,
And when he didn’t get his beer he went crazy
The last time I saw him he was drinking and driving then later that day I got news that he had crashed,
Alcohol ruined his life,
He’s still chained up trying to find freedom but
He can’t let goTags: #Adiction #Family #STOP ALCOHOLISM Life Academy of Health and Bioscience
