Recovery from Addiction poem

 

From Once Down

By Jerry Dorsman

From down, from out,
From lost, I escaped.
I quit the alcohol.
I quit the drugs.
I left that lifestyle.
I dropped the struggle.

Now free,
I see things afresh.
The world around me,
Pristine and vibrant,
Opens itself
New to me each day.
I meet that world.
I greet it.
It says “hello” in its own sweet way.
