ode to sobriety

at one point in my life you were all I knew.

then I didn’t see you for years.

I’m sorry I ever left you,

but you were my greatest fear.

 

everything else was so easy,

I didn’t have to think, but I felt it.

the substance kept me so busy,

while everything around me melted.

 

I know my return was long overdue,

but I’m finally ready to be here.

I’m sorry I ever left you,

But you were my greatest fear.
