I Will

As I sit here in my cell

I’m grateful to God to be

Out of hell.

The hold that alcohol and drugs

Had on me

Was something my mind just

Wouldn’t conceive

I have the choice to enjoy a

Healthy life

Yet destroy any opportunity

Without a fight

I give no regards to myself

Or others

I am determined to not ever

Give up

To apply life’s lessons that

I’ve been taught.

I’m tired of myself constantly

Complaining

I will strive for a life with a

Healthy new beginning
