Alcohol's Promises

Postby Dallas » Sun Nov 05, 2006 7:11 pm

A long time ago, someone gave me a copy of the below promises. I just came across them again and thought I would share them here.

Alcohol's Promises
I have some promises I'll make to you
If you will do what I want you to do.
The more that you consume of me
The more your losses will surely be.
And here are the promises to you I make
I promise these promises never to break.

I promise to take your money, and your home
And all you can get in the way of a loan.
I'll take your character, and your reputation too
Your good name... I'll take from you.
Your friends I'll take from you one day
Your family from you I'll turn away.

I'll take your car... I'll take your wealth
I'll take your job... I'll take your health.
I'll take your watch... I'll take your chain
I'll cause you to stay out in the rain.
I'll take your credit... I'll take your bail
I'll cause to sleep in a dirty jail.

I'll cause you regret... and remorse and pain
I'll cause you to go down in shame.
I'll bring you misery, I'll bring you woe
I'll bring more trouble than you know.
I'll take your clothes and pawn them too
The necessities of Life, I'll take from you.

I'll take from you the days, I'll take from you the years
I'll double the flow of your bitter tears.
I'll take your heart, give you one of stone
I'll cause you to walk through life alone.
I'll take away your desires to live aright
Your light of day, I'll turn to night.

I'll cause you to dishonor your mother and dad
I'll take away all the pleasure you could have had.
I'll turn your love for your friends to hate
Your desire to repent will come to late.
Your road to despair for you I'll pave
I'll cause you to fill a premature grave.

I'll put you in an institution for the insane
Your normal thinking will go down the drain.
I'll cause you to murder your very best friend
I'll trouble your mind to the very end.
I'll bring you contention, I'll bring you strife
I'll finish with you by taking your life........
