One Year

One year of sobriety
I have just gained today
now I know it's up to me
to not throw it away
I know only I can control myself 
with the help of god and fellowship
never again will I abandon myself
never another newcomer chip
I may have lost some acquaintances 
but I made many close friends
the things I lost were fragile
the things I gained last till the end
no longer am I trapped
in a prison cell I built
I'm no longer ashamed of myself
I am no longer controlled by guilt
surprisingly I trust things now
something I never thought I could
not only do I have your trust
but I thought I never would
