Sobriety Rocks

I was broken and angry
Angry at the world and angry at God
I felt lost and all alone
The alcohol and the drugs were my best friends
They always were there to comfort and console the pain
But then they abandoned me just like everyone and everything else did
Our relationship ended July 1st
I didn't know what to do
How do I live with the friends who turned against me
But how do I live without the only ones I ever trusted
It was July 4th and nobody would hear the gun with the fireworks
My heart ached, I was scared that my life would come to an end
I fell to the ground and looked up at the stars
I cried out for God to prove He loved me as everyone said He did
He brought me through the doors of Alcoholics Anonymous
It has been a long and hard road
But I haven't had to revisit those old friends since I found my God
He gave me another chance to live
Today my life is beyond anything I ever thought possible
It is better than I thought I ever deserved
I owe my life, my heart, and my soul to my best friend
I owe it all to Him and Alcoholics Anonymous
Today my God is the light of my life
He gave me sobriety and sobriety rocks
