  • You never have to be alone...
    I’ve heard this many times before,
    But finally, now, I understand
    That I can really turn the key, and let somebody in the door,
    And even let them take my hand, and never be alone again!

    I think that I have found a friend, or two, or five, or maybe ten!
    Thank you…that’s all I really have to say, it feels so good to feel this way
    It’s real and it is here today, in all the things we say and do
    Together! Nevermore alone!

    (A poem I wrote when I first found sustainable recovery from addiction)
