To Those Who Believed In Me

I know we got off on a rocky start
I really want to thank you from the bottom of my heart
For those of you who had faith in me and knew I could change
This is to you it's a promise, I won't be the same
'Your on a road to distruction' Scott Armes once said
Ever since I've heard those words they've stuck in my head
Someone I want to thank for not being quick to judge is Gina Twait
For believing I have potential and could make my life right
I have a lot of respect for Officer Swim
There needs to be more police officers as caring as him
I can't say thanks enough to those who truely care
For knowing eventually I would realize my life was going no where
It's too bad it took me this long to open my eyes
I'm tired of living a life full of lies
My life was a disaster but I've regained control
Now that I'm clean and sober i can start to feel whole
I no longer need drugs and alcohol to function
I'm taking a quick turn off that road to distruction
I'm changing my life, puting my life back together
And slowly but surely it will start to get better
I no longer need drugs and alcohol to cope
It's you who encouraged me and reminds me there's hope

    Keep your head held high, everybody makes mistakes. You'll ride through the dark days, and yes there will be dark days. It's nice to see that you're confronting them head on. Good luck.
