On his twenty first birthday
he got drunk just to prove he could

The day after he couldn’t remember
why it was so important

All he ever wanted was to feel normal
like everyone else

In his dreams he wakes up
lives in a normal room and drinks
all he wants without ever getting drunk

And everything is normal now

  1. My issue is the word normal. What is normal? You? Me, the way we are used to living. I think normal is a non existent word that puts a lot of strain and stress on teens. Merry Christmas!!
