I am often flooded with awe

& wonder

I was drowning in the affliction

Of my addiction

& I was saved from going under

Pulled back from the gates of death

Using my last breath

To Proclaim my pain

Truly lost – body and mind

It was full flight from reality

Just waiting to die

Alcohol was just one

Of my many masters.

The world kept on going

But I didnt think I would

Remorse, Horror, and Hopelessness

In such quantities – It is incredible!

The pain is simply unforgettable

How dark it is before the dawn

The night stretched before me cold & long

My human will

Would always fail

Until my roots grasped new soil

& I would set sail

Upon a foundation of complete willingness

All I had to do was embrace

God’s freely given grace.
