God, I Need Your Help

I drink and snort from dusk till dawn
And I wonder what really went wrong
I do not really understand the reasons why
But for days, weeks and months all I do is hurt and cry

God, I want to stop the pain but I don’t know how
I really need help and I mean now
No money do I have for the things I really need
God, I know you are trying to help but I just don’t heed

In and out of facilities for drug and alcohol rehabilitation
One day soon I am hoping for a true celebration
Hoping one day I will be clean from alcohol and drugs
I am tired of my skin feeling like it is crawling with bugs

I need to learn to deal with my addiction
And this will be my solemn conviction
To take and live one day at a time
To be taken away from the filth and the crime

Remember me Lord; I am the one on the booze and dope
Teach me ways to deal with this addiction and cope
So dear Lord, I guess I am asking for you to show me the way
To brighten up each and every beautiful day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
