I learned to stop asking about things I don’t want to know about….
Faith believes in things that aren’t seen
Faith is hope that things might be okay
Despite the tornado in your backyard
I may not fully understand what’s going on
But in the eye of the storm there’s peace
Today I went to AA
They asked me how long I’ve been sober and I told them.
“I’ve been sober for four days…”
Their faces filled with anxiety…
It’s the first week that’s the hardest, once you make it through then we know
Sobriety is sobriety.
Why does the time matter?
Sometimes people use things that are abstract to test commitment
I asked if you were committed and you said “no.”
I asked how much it would take for you to be committed and you said “nothing.”
In that moment I realized that I didn’t mean much to you anymore…
I packed my bags and went to AA
Not because I was addicted to alcohol..
But because I wanted to be amidst people that understood pain and sobriety…
Hi my name is….
I’ve been sober for four days…
