My New Life in Recovery
Inside my addiction, many things make me suffer.
So many mistakes from which I need to recover.
Dealing with depression, and reminded of the pain,
That’s what makes sobriety a hard thing to maintain.
I fell victim to the pin prick and the warm, soothing chill.
That ended up being my solution for all the things that I feel.
I couldn’t handle the madness that was inside my brain,
So I continued to push the liquid into my veins.
I kept myself inebriated, trying to drown out my thoughts,
But I can’t shake the nostalgia because I want what was lost.
I’m holding onto memories of a life that’s nothing more than a ghost.
Leaving a deep wound from a dull edge, my heart is exposed.
As I’m learning to let go, I gain peace and serenity,
Letting the pain fade away, so my guilts can be set free.
Surrendering myself to my higher power, giving myself a chance to succeed,
I’m on my way down the path to my new life, to my new life in recovery.
