My blessings are immeasurable
I sit in silence
and reflect on my life.
Encircled by such beauty and light
I hold gratitude for food provided
and the shelter that houses my soul.
Inside this space
there is comfort and warmth
I feel contented and protected.
I hold this immense love inside
Love that shines outwardly
To those around me,
some whom I invite into my life,
and others, whom I now cautiously avoid.
I hold huge affection for those who,
in the past, have demonstrated
a sense of non-judgemental understanding
and who offered me a chance.
I carry compassion and kindness
for anyone who crosses my path.
On my journey into recover
My beautiful existence
Today, I feel alive
I experience joyous and peaceful bliss.
Yet, I am humbled by those individuals
who still struggle to come to terms
with their painful pasts.
The hell that they have had to endure,
The hell they will still experience in
whilst in addiction.
Inspired by their resilience and inner strength
In a world so full of suffering.
And all I can offer is this message
That regardless of your plight
I hear you
I see you.
And there is always hope,
there is purposefulness,
there is a wondrous life!
I hope that you too will give yourself a chance
and step into the light.
Abandon your self-destructiveness
and walk the road into recovery.
Because I am worth it,
And you are worth it too.
Accompany those of us
who travel this journey into recovery
Where life is simple,
and you are free.
