Recovery poem


I'm a recovering Rochester boy
recovering from the choices I made

Some memories haunt me
but there is nothing I can do

I always carried my heart on my sleeve

It made me vulnerable just like you

But I'm a recovering Rochester boy
accept me as I am

In short I'm mot super human
I'm merely just a man

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
