Deeper Into Addiction: Finale, The Cure

Life became so much easier
When I accepted the inevitable
My heart's so frail, it'll stop before long
The end is only a few years away

I'm sober again
My stinging liquid lifeblood, no longer a crutch
A treat, to be sure
But no longer required

My memories don't hurt
They aren't locked away
But I accept them for what they are
Memories, only that

When the end became certain
Life brightened up
The skies became clear
The waves became calm

My sight opened up 
To take in the view
My thoughts organized
To accept what they must

I can smile again
Now that my addictions are dead
The sun's about to set
But I can truly live until then.
