Stop what you’re doing, you’ve got it wrong.
With the drugs you’re using, you don’t have long
The time has come, ‘one day’ is here
To move away from the lifestyle, you’ve held so dear
When the cloak of denial falls from you
Your eyes will open and see what’s true.
Hope awakens, in your beating heart
You acknowledge the problem, you own your part.
Step by step – you move further away
From those dark and empty, hopeless days.
Something awakens deep within
You feel its movement with a grin
Colors are back, vibrant and true
Feeding you in a way – you never before knew.
The people you love, are no longer at war
You hurt them less, you love them more
You’re astonished and humbled and brought to your knees
By the cunning and power of your disease.
On your own you don’t have a chance.
You’re simply a puppet to addictions sick dance.
With the help of a Higher Power, every day.
The chains of addiction, drop away
Families are mended, trust is regained.
The circle is broken, of never ever ending pain.
Our children can smile and giggle too
Their days of hyper-vigilance, are now few.
You find a thirst for something new
Love fills the cup, of your old brew.
Free at last, or so they say…
Our gratitude keeps the demons at bay
Life is precious, you hold it dear
The song of a bird can bring a tear
Your wound has healed, it’s all filled in.
Content and peaceful, what a win.
And as you lay in bed at night
You pray for the guidance, to make wrongs right.
A purpose is found in years of past pain
And sharing it with others, is our gain.
If you find yourself lost, WE are here.
Hope is very, very, near.
Start by bending knee to the floor
Pray for help, then pray it some more.
Recovery says…..it’s your choice to make.
Two paths, one life, which will you take?
