Two Months Sober

Postby Hionlife » Thu Jan 13, 2011 11:53 pm

My past lies behind me.
Not always the right path,
Sometimes hard and painful.
The straight stretches filled with love,
And heartaches around every corner.

I've cried!
I've mourned!
I've laughed!
I've prayed!

And I have survived!!!

Through the struggles I got tough.
Through the joy I smiled.
Through the pain I cried.
Through the heartache I grew tired.
Through the happiness I rested.

My past lies behind me.
My future is unknown.
But my soul cries out for rest,
And a freedom it has never known.
Peace of Mind.

I came across this today, I wrote it 11 years ago at 2mos sober, this is the first time I have ever shared it.
