Live Beyond the Past

The journey of recovering is one thing
learning to live in recovery is everything
The royal understanding that I am great
A spotted past with a present clean slate

Different choices to make
Healthy decisions to celebrate
The serenity of sunshine I create
No room for doom to meditate
Living heavenly needs no rebate
Forgiveness is my resting place

Now

Someone else may whisper about the past
Then comes MY laugh, hoping they catch whiplash
As they turn to see what use to be
what use to abuse me
See the bruise me
Can’t accept the new me
With this brand of Serenity
As peaceful is my New Identity

Still laughing cause
they thought so little of me
Because they thought
their own frailty
was hidden from me…

Anybody that is recovering from anything…Celebrate You…Don’t let others just bring up the past of shame/addiction… Move to the overcoming, the bright future… Let them stay stuck… Keep it Moving… Move your mind and Conversation… Declare your new found lease on life along with your new identity…please

  1. I am printing and framing this, and only wish you could sign it. Only the recovered could write it, only the recovered could fully understand it. ❀ Thank you, again, for such eloquence and grit, all in the same, beautiful piece.
