Poems for inspiration

Sober

No more exaggeration of life
Harmony within strife
Forgoing total self-control
Abstaining to reach the goal
Addiction is unrelenting
Sobreity is reinventing
A serious solemn decision
A level-headed vision
Looking deep within
Peeling off the dead skin
Adhering to reality
Powering your vitality
Cleaning out your mind
Breaking down the bind
Restore conciousness over time
Life will once again be sublime
Not hiding from your fear
Deciding to reappear

Forget the intoxicated past
MOVE FOWARD SOBER!

  
Jam Another Dragon Down The Hole


Jam another dragon down the hole
Watch as it burns your life and soul
Ripping you apart with its claws
Constantly preying on all your flaws
Sharp teeth tearing at you inside
Scars are getting harder to hide
Devouring all youve known
This unstoppable cyclone
Memories fading away
Turning everything gray
Emptiness fills our hearts
We are falling apart
Black void in our mind
Leaving love blind
Emotionless
Cold

We must fight back
Learn how to attack
Slay this dragon with love
We can rise above
Stop giving in
Shed this dragon's skin
Dig in deep
Stop living life asleep
Let the dragon out
Stop living in doubt
You can do this
Climb out of the abyss
Dont tremble in fear
Open your arms i need you here
Stop running away
We all need you to stay
Defeat this addiction
With loving friction
Have Faith
Have Hope
Have Desire
Aquire the Fire
Love and Passion
Be Optimistic

YOU WILL WIN
STAY STRONG
KEEP FIGHTING
DEFEAT THE DRAGON
LIVE YOUR LIFE AGAIN
I LOVE YOU ALL MY FRIENDS

Awesome poety, straight talk and from the heart. I love the second one, it expresses exactly how I feel about the "dragon". Thanks for posting and I just wanted you to know it did help me, and I see there are several others who agree.
Peace.
