Alcohol Addiction Poem

Father Is An Alcoholic

I live in an alcoholic family
my dad is the alcoholic it's like he is two different people sometimes, I feel as if I have no one to talk to at times, and it's really hard when he gets angry at me and get in my face screaming making me feel like everything I do is wrong and pushing me around.
So I wrote this poem to tell people that they are not alone and there is help out there you just need to embrace it.

The Devil Drinks Alcohol

Behind those eyes,
who would see the pain that lies inside,
secrets she only wish she could deny.
But don't runaway little girl,
don't runaway.

When she feels the world doesn't care,
trying to hide beneath her hair,
wondering is she could just disappear.
But don't runaway little girl,
don't runaway.

Yelling and screaming around her head,
as she excuses herself early to bed,
"Who cares!" they said.
But don't runaway little girl,
don't runaway.

Walking to school black and blue,
nobody knows what she's been through,
except for he who has done this has a clue.
But don't runaway little girl,
don't runaway

She's got a jumper, she's got a pillow,
she heads towards that dreary window,
with shattered dreams she has to go,
and leave behind all her woe.

With a single tear down her face,
as she leaves that house as a disgrace.
She's taken her scars can't you see?
The invisible marks hacked in by thee

For all those who live in fear,
I'll let you know we are here.
I know you must feel scared and alone,
but we will find you a place called home.

When you cry don't hide,
because we will be here by your side.
With a listening ear and a helping hand,
we will try to understand
