Sanity – My Prize

No comments

Its now been ten weeks since I drank
and so time to reflect 

On cravings and some other things
like love and self respect 

At times they were in short supply
a bleak and barren shore

but sobriety has come to me
replenishing the store.

While others thought my life was sweet
I knew the truth inside 

I’m standing on a precipice
and fearful of the slide

to depths unplumbed imagined fears
were constants in my day

at 3am and wide awake
these fears were on replay.

But now I’ve put the bottle down
to lift again no more 

The wicked grip of alcohol
no longer to the fore

It’s ultra evil influence
laid bare before my eyes

It’s presence an affront to me
and sanity my prize.
