Don't Dumb Down Without a Fight
Is it time to give up the Booze?
The thing is no-one can do it for you
You can’t hire someone to live your life
They won’t know how you feel inside
Your life is yours
To make the most of
Or numb away the hours
But time is finite, right?
So do you want to dumb down without a fight?
If you want to give up the booze
Don’t let life pass you by
Do something soul giving not soul-destroying tonight
You’ll never know how great sober can be
If you don’t really try it out fully
Don’t let booze sully emotions that are pure and real
Isn’t it really a gift to feel?
Your life shouldn’t be a movie reel
It’s time to give up the booze and feel
You get to interact
And make a difference that’s a fact
But to do that we have to care
And to show that we do we have to really be there
If we’re going to be here in this moment
Shouldn’t we really be here in this moment?
Shouldn’t we own the moments we experience
To grow from them, learn from them,
React to them, enact them,
Really live them?
If some moments are too distressing we can walk away
Or distract and face them another day
It’s not about causing more pain
But learning to dance when it’s pouring with rain
And building ourselves back up
Ready to fight again
Don’t let apathy for yourself exist within you
You matter, you definitely do
So isn’t it time you mattered to yourself too? ❤
Maybe it’s time to give up the booze.
Time is Finite Don’t Dumb Down Without a Fight!
