Today I had a setback
I gave in to your call
I couldn't take it anymore
I up and took the fall

As soon as my guard was down
You saw the perfect chance
To erase two years of freedom
To persuaid me to dance

Just when I thought I had beaten you
You proved that I was wrong
I thought this was getting easier
after being strong for so long

Today I had a setback
Another lesson learned
Freedom from addiction isn't given
It simply has to be earned

To be continued....


Hi again guys, This piece of the puzzle was written a couple years after I stopped drinking. As you can see this road has not been an easy one, but I am bound and determined to win this war one day at a time. Thank you again for reading.


 All my love,
Jeffrey

I lie awake in a world filled with dreams,
but dreams can be so real when you don't know you're asleep

Every day that you fight the good fight brings you closer to winning the worthwhile battle.  Heroes take one step at a time and eventually grasp most aspects of their destiny.

 There are places inside our souls ...
that have never been touched.
There are places inside our hearts ...
that need to be loved this much.
