Why Do People Drink As They Do?

i had forgotten that i had received the poem that follows, yet in a moment in time most all of it was revealed unto to me once again.

The poem was written back in the 70's for a next door neighbor who had a drinking problem.

Why do people drink as they do?
Could be a man, a woman, or even you.

"Never give up", you hear it said all the time,
Keep looking and searching for what's mine.

Yet, how long to endure that grueling pace?
With no friend, no love, to find it's rightful place.
