Down the Drain

No sugar and a headache waiting—

Knocked down for days, but

Better times are just ahead while

Sweetness loses its control and

The headache was its last attempt—

No more, no more, I'm fighting for

The reigns, fighting myself for better

Self-control and the sugar will

Be too sweet and sickly for me.

I'll break the habit and my body will

Thank me—show me the results that

I've been looking for; knocking a

False friend down, revealing that it

Was never there to make me truly

Happy. I am done and the aches will

Melt away with the sugar down the drain.
