I wrote this poem after a good friend lost her life to alcoholism

Dancing with The Devil

Plunged into the depths of despair,
The number one enemy is sadness,
Drawn to Lucifer’s nefarious lair,
Driving confusion to madness.

Where is the answer, where is it hiding?
What is wrong and what is right?
Are there two worlds colliding,
Dancing in the Devil’s delight?

Doom and gloom, death and damnation,
Sorrow beckons through the night,
Destruction, depravity; the Devil’s creation
Of Hell, who has left on the light.

This is how the liver looks in the final stages of alcohol liver disease - #cirrhosis.

At this point of no return, liver functions worsen permanently & one barely survives a couple more years.

{Share for awareness!}
Alcohol destroys your liver in stages.

First, it causes fats to deposit on your liver.

Then, fibrous strands grow in your liver.

Finally, #cirrhosis sets it, which is irreparable & irreversible injury. It can kill you or further lead to #LiverCancer.

As you drink too much alcohol, your liver & life are gradually paying the ultimate price.

So, think about this. Is it really worth it?
