Getting Stronger


Getting Stronger



Crying herself to sleep unable to stem the flow

Her life was so wretched that she wanted to harm

And punish herself for her condition addiction

Alcohol - - the plaything of teens yet a killer


An insidious invader of the mind a torturer

Which creates first dependence as an affliction

Then brings forth cravings and urges life's alarm

To succumb only brings them faster leaving you low


She hated herself - - self-harmed - - even over-dosed

Wanting escape from her self-imposed purgatory

But a friend caught her before she finally fell and


Took her to a group of like-minded individuals

I met her there counselled her brought her back

She's getting better - - stronger and so too am I

I pray that the last stanza is fiction.  I had an alcoholic step-father growing up.  Wasn't a fun time in my life.  While he was a wonderful man when he was sober, thinking back now, I can only remember in the thirteen years I knew him, of his being sober a few times.  He tried AA, but to no avail.  Good that she found the group.  I pray that she is successful.  Your poem brings back many memories I chose to forget.  (My poem  "Pain Relief" ended  our time together)

You speak of the essence of being.  There is nothing better than to help another.  She will succeed -- and you will feel great!  --David
