Poet's Corner: Recovery Road

Recovery Road

 

By Bonnie Marie Playle, Soldotna

This road called Recovery,

what a road it can be,

with its hills, dales and valleys.

Some are short, while some are long,

all are attainable if I remain strong.

My reliance on God is the key,

always trust in Him and I shall be free.

Loving others through their difficult times

easy-no, but blessings-huge sometimes.

Be happy, with a stiff upper lip,

constantly strong, so you don’t slip.

Negative actions and negative thoughts

painful, hurtful memories are brought.

Drowning in the sea of fears and tears,

Divine whispers I begin to hear.

The key to good recovery is most definitely prayer.

To succeed without it,

most assuredly rare.

To think where I would be

without my Higher Power carrying me;

sends chills up and down my spine

I choose to leave the pain behind.
