Recovery - a poem by Sam, Recovery Motivator

I keep going to all these meetings to talk about how I feel,

But the truth about my feeling is I don’t feel real,

And people keep saying Sam you’re doing good,

But the truth about my thinking is I am not doing all I could,

Now pain, guilt, insecurity they all took me to the brink,

And the only way I coped with it was to take another drink,

Now that chemical defibrillator that’s no longer there,

So each day I just hope it’s not too much to bear,

It’s up and down, it's left or right but it’s never a straight line.

But hey I haven’t used today, I guess I am doing fine.

Sam James
