Learning to Live
I spent most of my life searching
Trying to fill this void inside
Always feeling incomplete
Only feeling safe when I could hide.
I put myself in situations
That baffled the average mind
Then I spent everyday trying to forget
And leave it all behind.
It's like the whole world was against me
Because I couldn't conform to their ways
They were going to work and being responsible
And I was getting drunk everyday.
I finally realized when I walked in these rooms
I didn't have to live that way anymore
That I had been living with a deadly disease
And it was waiting outside that door.
Because of the steps you suggested I take
I have found a freedom from all the pain
Hand in hand with my Higher Power
I am learning to live again...
