Poem #2

The path of my life is strewn with destruction
from the lies I have told
to the hearts I have torn

There's my parents who love me and want my success
yet continually ache for the life I have led
Their support is unbending, but deep in their hearts
they question their role in creating my pain

There's my daughter who's life was turned upside down
when the daddy who kissed her each night before sleep
was no longer there as addiction took it's toll
and ended a marriage which was all her life knew

The marriage I have now ,a blessing beyond measure
 has also been stained by the pain
trust shattered, safety destroyed, covenants mocked
until her very foundation seems to shake when she walks

The damage must stop, the destruction must end
only one path leads to a more peaceful place
recovery. sanity. sobriety.
