A Step Forward


This hard journey has just begun

Just when I thought it was over and I had won

There are no more drugs to do

No more bad choices to make

Yet my hands still tremble, quiver, and shake

Reality now hits, emotions kick in

I start to realize all my mess-ups and sins

They told me I'd be happier

They said id be fine

But when i was high covering everything up things were divine

I have to stay strong living life on lifes terms 

If i end up relapsing I'll get stabbed beaten and burned

I need my sobriety, not only need but want

Without giving into these temptations that haunt

I know this will be hard so easy to give in

But as long as i keep my head up i know i will win
