Recovery Discovery -(28 lines, 28 days)

Recovery Discovery -(28 lines, 28 days)

A Poem by FarisGreybear

written in Elizabethtown, Hardin County, KY Wednesday, August 6th, 2003.

1. Deep inside the spiritual core,

2. prayers to God for heaven's shore.
3. Surviving the years, no fear of recovery,
4. the cruelty of humans, our one true discovery

5. Of all the past pain, are we to reminisce?
6. Loneliness delayed by chemical induced bliss.
7. The truths of life and social interaction:
8. 'don't care, don't share, isn't love a distraction?'

9. The crime, the mistake, the friends we tried to make.
10. Trust lost, the heavy cost, how much can we take?
11. Driving into the ears, the laughs of peers. What discovery!
12. when God lights the way through the cave of recovery.

13. Wet behind the ears, naive at best.
14. Oceans of depression, waves at full crest.
15. Climbing the slope of time, losing traction.
16. Hopeless helplessness, the repetitive reaction.

17. Once beyond the river of the past, now crossed,
18. navigating the forest of present, no longer lost.
19. Thriving through the years, spending little recovery,
20. the worthlessness of money, my one true discovery.

21. Champion of self-abuse, intelligence of no use,
22. smoking and choking with eyes toward the noose.
23. Dancing on eggshells to avoid an infraction,
24. so care and share, join the sober faction!?

25. Into the future, heart filled with daydreams,
26. unpredictable path, nothing what it seems.
27. Diversions and downfalls, more of life's discovery,
28. all rolled into one for a lifelong of recovery."
