C4C thanks for the criticism/help

Well, hello my name is Pat Craig
This is my first time in AA.
I never thought I would be sitting here,
Especially at the young age of eighteen.
Have I had too many, or do I just need a beer?
I don’t share feelings can I please leave?
I went and did what I planned to achieve.
Oh, I was so young and naïve.

Have you ever had to give up your best friend?
I have, I cannot see the man no more.
The man Jack has me lost, so another drink I pour.
If I see Mr. Daniels I will finally be put to rest.
And that I can see this through the haze I am blessed.
Yes, if I have another drink I’ll die, so this is goodbye.

It all started on March twenty-first,
A day that will be forever cursed.
I was brought to jail, arrested for LSD.
Now I know I should’ve stuck to the green,
Something that wouldn’t harm me we can agree.
After jail I traded my pipe for a bottle of Jack.
I bathed in whiskey and was thrown off track.
I would drown myself, till all I saw was black.

And that I can see this through the haze I am blessed.
Yes, if I have another drink I’ll die, so this is goodbye.

I have to say sorry to my family and friends.
I have cleared my head and tried to make amends.
I know that I have put you through a lot.
I have cost you money and taken your pot.
I have made you worry all night.
And for this I’m sorry and feel contrite.
I’ve taken off my goggle and see the light.
I’ve given my soul to Jah so my future is bright
