How To Love An Alcoholic Father

I have dealt with a lot of traumas from my father. The fact that he is an alcoholic gives him a whole other side that is almost unforgivable. I'll search my whole life for the forgiveness it takes, and at the same time, I'll love him no matter what.

At The Bottom Of The Bottle


Published by Family Friend Poems April 2008 with permission of the author.

At the bottom of the bottle
his feelings won't show.
He'll let no one know
the feelings he hides.
Real late at night,
his feelings ignite
at the bottom of the bottle.

When his pain goes away,
he feels ashamed
to feel so insane.
He'll never know it's all right,
so for his liquor he'll fight,
and his pain goes away
at the bottom of the bottle.

It's a sad sight.
His lifestyle is traumatic.
Moving out, I'll be ecstatic.
It's unfortunate, I know,
but that doesn't mean I won't go.
It's a sad sight
at the bottom of the bottle.
