Recovery

RECOVERY

 

Recovery ain't easy

Recovery needs honesty

Honesty about the ugliness

Honesty about those you pushed away

 

Meanwhile…

Family and true friends are waiting…

Purpose is waiting…

Dreams are waiting …

 

Be honest with your self

Love yourself again

No more putting a fist through the mirror

 

Recovery is learning to trust

Trust those who are helping

Even when it hurts

Yes there is pain

But then - you’re no stranger to pain

 

I promise you

You will awake from the nightmare

You will dare to dream

You will want to live to the max

You are a beautiful unique human

You have much more to give

More than you can possible imagine

 

I can say this because I have kissed the lips of death

I can say this as a human who saw the doctor’s fingers barely apart

Telling me how close I was to leaving this earth

 

Recovery is no walk in the park

But I promise you

It's worth it
