The Key to Alcoholism

26) To Die in the Dark Star
(The Lost Drunk: the Key to Alcoholism)

I, seeing none of my virtues in youth
Set out to die—in the dark star…!

I’d been drawn under years of drinking
Desiring to give up, expecting to die.

Yet I gave it all, and forgot it all, and
Somehow stuck out my pale hand…

Out of the lonely black star, and then
Appeared, a fading light, and it pulled,

And it pulled, and pulled and pulled:
It was the hand of Jesus Christ!…

Commentary: Facing eye to eye with alcoholism is hard to do; it is like a lamb looking into the mouth of a lion, yes indeed, and he is the master lion, and you are his slave like it or not: you will work, slave to get it, perhaps rob and plunder, fight to save it. It is to feed organ to organ, to fill one from head to toe. Goose pimpled knees, teeth tight against one another, pushing out that is how you will be if you can’t find it. It is the nature of the beast. The key to alcoholism is this in a nutshell: the drunk drinks it because he likes it; he drinks it because it does something for him, otherwise he’d not do it. The key, the key, here it is: the key, is going through it, the tunnel and knowing at the end there is an opening, and you can go out it, and on the other side is something better. If you can’t offer a drunk something better, why in heavens name do you reckon he will drudge himself through the tunnel to the opening, of which he perhaps doesn’t believe exists at the end, anyway; and if he does, the question still remains ´is it better than what you got (or what you are doing)?’. Like like, drinking is a choice. We choose to like, or drink, it is as simple as that. And if he could, he would stop, but he can’t unless he is given that key. I am not here advocating one call on Christ, but it would help, I am saying if one wants to stop drinking, the key is here, and Christ can make it simpler for you, yet He is willing to do it without you believing in Him, yet you have to find the key.
