Recovery is where I’m at,
For years a devil and an angel on my shoulder sat,
The bad telling me yes,
The good saying no,
I felt I had no place to go.
What started off fun,
Soon turned to pain.
Around my neck a ball and chain.
I wanted to just break free and return to normality,
The madness had taken a hold,
My spirit to the devil I had sold,
The only thing that mattered was drugs,
Not even myself, I didn’t care about my appearance or health.
I’d beg, steal or borrow for cocaine,
It’s all I had on the brain.
My family and friends I did neglect,
I was an addict, what do you expect.
Inside your feelings die, sat in my flat I would cry,
All I felt was pain, I wanted to break free of the ball and chain.
I then went to prison and that did it for me,
I now look forward to each day and loving life I have to say
hitting rock bottom is what it takes.
I now have a new lease of life and it feels great, it was totally worth the wait,
I am truly happy as can be, because I love recovery
