my whitness

A glass of whiskey for the stress put on me
 another drink to ease my pain
 this shot of vodka for the lies I learned
 pour me one for the shame I carry
 Down the drinks to forget the memories I see
 Smell the alcohol on my breath
 See me stumble into the darkness 
Just another reason to avoid my life
 Slowly slipping away from all
 It is you I call to
 For you are my only whitness 
Down the drink
