I am feeling less than human No longer worthy of love Each day i live out What nightmares are made of
I am contemplating silence The kind that doesn't end That way I will never have to Find out what lies around the bend
I am afraid of what I've become I should leave while I still can To split before I hurt someone I think is the smartest plan
I should have known from the beginning I would end up spiraling down I thought i could avoid my fate Now in addiction I drown
I'm only happy when I'm high It is a temporary reprieve from the pain so I cover up marks on my arm with my sleeve
I have never felt like such a failure Nor felt so frail and so weak I've lost all my appetite I can't find the will to speak
I wish I could beat the ache Rise up and take my life back If I were stronger then I could get my life on track
Instead I hide my suffering Hold the hurt I feel inside Now everything that once was good In me withered away and died
A flower in December Once beautiful and innocent My soul is no longer blooming My petals are all bent
Is it too late to save myself from the path I have chosen to walk on? Can I rekindle the fire Within or am I too far gone?
I want to believe there is still a chance To change the person I am I wish I was not this girl Who would do anything for a gram
My life has been like this too long To be exact: almost a year I cannot remember when things went wrong I do not know how I ended up here
I should have thought things through then Before I took my first hit Honestly I had no idea How hard it would be to quit
First stage of change: acceptance What is the second? I don't know That is the problem, I'm ready But have no clue where to go
I need to move an inch forward Because my life is at stake I want to feel how I used to Before I made that fatal mistake
I have come so far since then and I am so proud of myself! Today is the two month mark for me being clean from ****** and I have been off suboxone for a week now I feel ****** but I know it can only get better from here on out. Some days are hard but ultimately nothing is worth the pain that comes with drug abuse. To everyone out there in recovery: STAY STRONG!
