Writing poetry has been an outlet of mine since I was in high school. Especially through my addiction. My poems would just come to me, random thoughts popping in my mind without effort of my own.
In my active addiction, a lot of my poetry came from a very dark place but by the end of the poem there was always hope of overcoming the demons I was facing.
Always a light at the end of the tunnel. Since being in recovery I have realized that my Higher Power was speaking to me through my own poetry to tell me things would eventually get better.
“In me your light did shine
With me even in my darkest times
Your encouraging words
Echoed in my mind
And flowed right through this hand of mine.”
