After my first year of sobriety, I realized I’ve been run by my own fear. Anytime I was afraid of doing something I just wouldn’t do it, completely in my own way. 

I have blamed my lack of motivation on depression and many other things but now have come to find out that it was because of my fear. 

It immobilized me. Since realizing this I have been praying for my higher power to grant me courage to get through each day and to do the things I need to even if I am afraid. And since I began to do that, things have been easier! Much easier! 

Enslaved by addiction
Or so I had thought

When really in a web of fear

Is where I am caught

Because even with

All the substances removed

Still I am stuck 

Unable to move.
