To What I Once Was - Poem by Josh Brabender
When you shift your life's priorities,
People shift their views
They talked about my success
Then about my treatment news.
I thought about girlfriends
Then only thought of getting high
And I hung out every Friday night
then stayed home alone and blazed into the sky
those white pills became my life
I revolved my world around a fix
I popped them each and every day
Unaware of the pain that it inflicts
I slowly saw but didn't see that I was in some trouble
As all I did was trip up in my room
All the while I kept quiet made my issues double
And all of my seclusion would turn to be my doom
Things are finally better now And go back, I think not
Going back to those day's the same as laying down to Rot.
-A reminder to myself..
because a relapse is no reason to give up
