The Theme Is .....

A spirit who had the sense
to want a human experience.

So, growing through earth days
she walks a thin line always

between heaven and hell
and oh my, she's survived very well !!

Survived and continues to grow,
an artist blessed, always curious to know

this earth's history and mystery, philosophies
never to shut down in a freeze

of close-minded ways.
She is a teacher and student all her days.

A woman of passion and serenity
living with purpose in sobriety.

Carrying a recovery message to all
graced to help others not to fall

into dark addictions so fear-driven
but to give Hope like she was given.

Faith in myself this She that I am,
a work in progress to the very end.

    I like how you seem to see yourself. Through these words I see a person willing to keep learning with an open mind, and prepared to give back what she can....well written Sue. A pleasure to read, good luck...Margaret

    Sue, wonderful message in this poem. It is our responsibility to pass along too others the knowledge we learned the hard way. Hope is a wonderful thing and each day of our sober lives we offer hope to others. So good to read you again Sue. You know Behavioral Science specializing in "Alcohol & Drug Addiction" is my major; although, learning to write correctly is my love. Speaking of which, "I love your life Sue." YF4L, God Bless, mj
