Hour 6 Growth

I witnessed you in darkness without a firm footing

struggling to survive because nature abhors suicide

so lost and drowning in the alcohol and drugs;

anesthesia for your pain;

also blunting the happiness and joy that continued to exist

no matter how empty the chasm felt because nature abhors emptiness

Now are you thriving instead of just surviving—

An empowered and wise soul with the willingness to keep

growing and going.
