I found an old journal that contains a poem I wrote when I first got sober. For some reason it doesn't make me cringe.
I drive a shitty car, live in a shitty town.
My job is shitty too, my boss is just a clown.
I have a shitty house and watch those shitty shows.
My dog is shitty too, he never comes around.
I have a cranky husband, he's a shitty fool.
My kids are shitty too, they never go to school.
I drink shitty wine, and sometimes shitty booze.
My doctor says I gotta stop and sometimes I do.
I'm a shitty mom and people say I'm rude.
My life is pretty shitty with my shitty attitude.
