ADDICT...

it's a second by second struggle that i'm fighting with all my might

i pray to my higher power to help me stay sober today

in that one moment i would get weak and my life as i know it wil end

it's not prison that scares me it's how i'd live with myself

the temptation kills me the urges paralize me the cravings consume me

it's so hard to be strong when you're weak

when everyone's looking at you through broken rose colored glasses

so many expectations they hang over me at times i just wanna break free

no one understands me i feel so alone fighting the devil in my own home

i get no credit for anything i do at times that's all i need to help me through

this life is all new to me in everyway it's like learning to walk without crawling

i'm forced to face the world as i know it afraid and vulnerable not wanting to quit

i dream of getting high and their so vivid and so real

i wake up not knowing how to feel

a warrior i am so i know i can stay strong but this addiction is in me til i'm dead and gone

please give me a chance to live my life i may not always be right but i'm in it for the fight

    Brandy, You will win the fight. Stay strong and seek kind friends. But most of all, keep your sights on God and set goals for your next days, months, years, and work. I mean give all that you have got to make those dreams and goals come true. Grow into self-respect thought by thought, hope upon hope and NEVER give up. Loving, Dane (Soupmail)

    I wish I had read this sooner Brandy! :( Honey you are so strong you are like molten steel!! you got it running through you! To overcome what you have and keep going. We all need a helping hand sometimes, and need caring and understanding. Hope all went well. Though i am sure it did because you want to win the fight and that is more than half the battle. My brother will tell you that. Awsome writing again. Love C
