LIFT ME TO SUNSHINE

With the world ahead of me, possibilities abound

With my new path, opportunity found

No longer lost in self inflicted smoke

Heavy atmosphere, burning to choke

Now clearing and allowing light resume

With the world ahead of me, there is so much room

For laughter, and sharing, and feeling in tune

Appreciating everything from the sun to the moon

With music and hope flourishing freely

Surrounding, protecting and dancing beneath me,

Open and willing is where I wish to remain,

Leaving behind my thoughts filled with pain

Taking forward what serves me and lifts me up

To the clouds and the sunshine I’ve reached above,

With the world ahead of me and an outlook so new

Allowing my life to unfold, perhaps brings me to you

Where there is apprehension sizzling, but I will remind

The previous life I have left behind

Stay in the moment and be in today

This brings me peace and I embrace the new way

To content and faith, serenity

Everything in the world that is ahead for me.

REINFORCED LOCKS

Let me in, I’m knocking gently at your door

I am waiting for you and your need for more

Turn on that switch and unbolt the lock

Let me come in, I just want to talk

About my power and your self-doubt

The bottled up emotion you deserve to let out

I will take it and make everything alright

Remember me? It’s easy, I’ll help you lose sight

I will hold you and take you away

We had good times, come on out and play

Where I can distract you from life, from family, from friends

Open up to me, I am the familiar descend

I am pounding at the door now, just open it a crack

Let me in for a moment, then get back on track

I won’t stay long, just a lifetime I intend to cut short

Come on just one puff, one line, one snort…..

 

Go away demon, leave me alone!

Don’t knock, don’t write, don’t call on the phone

Looking back is opening the door to death

Of spirit, of connection, of body, mind, breath

Come any closer and I will scream

Help will come running, the NA regime

Be sorry you ever knocked at my door

For now I embrace recovery hardcore

The locks are secure, the fortress is tight

Make your retreat, you won’t get in tonight.
