Spirit

They said not to worry
They said it will be okay
They said to keep up my spirits
And I let some spirits fill me up

They said to believe
They said to not lose hope
They said have patience
I waited with a little liquid patience

They said there is light after dark
They said tomorrow is another day
They said to trust in the plan
I pored over the plan so far and poured another

They told me I was an alcoholic
They said I needed to change
They said I’d caused my own fall
I kept up my spirits and numbed my soul
