This is a poem I wrote recently called "The Road To Sobriety". Getting clean has been hard and this is how I'm able to just...write out what I'm feeling...
The Road To Sobriety
by Conrad Harris
As I crawl upon a sober Road. A friend lends a hand, and many stories are told so many people like me that have chosen life Chosen to be free Addiction is a Family Curse that does not discriminate cares not about your race, or how much money do you make this Demon only turns once was loved , into something it can devastate It is there you learn how to suppress all fear and pain there to hold you down, taking lives , taking names with nothing to gain As I crawl upon the road, it is Dark, it is cold, it is so hard to see It's only then I realize there is so many like me Nothing is easy as you face yourself, we all are broken so much you should have, could have, all words unspoken to walk upon this road takes courage, takes strength living life without being Anesthetized , living so openly criticized "It works if you work it " all the clichés you dislike They really do work , so listen and you will not have to ride a bike So many times you can Fall, you'll know what to do , and whom to call Out of the Darkness A friend helps you stand, a good cup of coffee with number in hand. there to help you , there to lift you up, there to help you stand. You must share in all honesty, then you will be driven to start over with Integrity.
