Twas The Night Before Detox

Twas the night before detox, and all through the house
There is panic and fear, knowing what it's about
Immodium by the bed, just praying it will work
Needing to get some sleep, but my legs start to jerk

The family was all nestled, snug in their bed
While visions and nightmares dance in my head
When out on the lawn, I heard such sound
But it's all in my head, getting paranoid coming down

When what to my wondering eyes should appear
A new day has come and it became so clear
More rapid than eagles, I saw a glimpse of light
That gave me hope and continue to fight

One day at a time, is all it will take
Need help and support, so that i won't break
On bobby, on domino, on avis and kim715 too
Show us the way, and keep helping us through

I sprang to my truck with a sigh of relief
And drove away fast, from all of this grief
But I yelled out loud as I drove out of sight
Good luck in your recovery and to all a good night

Happy holidays everyone. Stay true to this fight, we will make it:)

youre such a multifaceted dude, lol  Great poem Gizz . what makes it even more remarkable is the fact that coke was your DOC, not pills,  so the immodium bottle part really shows how much youve learned from being here and your empathy for all.  x o xo
