It's Always Harder When Your Sober

It's always harder
when your sober.
you feel more
out of control
lost to the people
around you.

It's always harder
when your sober.
getting the left overs
from society
as the push you
out of the way.

It's always harder
when your sober
so pick up that bottle
and drink to your
hearts content.
Take that joint
tastes like mint.

It's always harder
when your sober
because you feel more
you understand what
you do and know
that it really isn't you.

It's always harder
when your sober.
But you can't face
the problems
with the world
crumbling at your feet.

It's always harder
when your sober.
But that is no excuse
to ignore your sisters
to hate your parents
to stop your life
all for a drink or a joint.

It's always harder
when your sober.
But are you weak?
Or are you strong?
