The Addiction

Through every addiction and every affliction
Life has taken on many descriptions
Filled with thoughts of revenge and redemption
Kept moving forward despite the deception
Took every turn, fought through every drop of pain
Trying to run would've just been insane
It would mean all the sacrifices were made in vain
Eventually the storm had to run out of rain
Moving forward but never forgetting the past
Twenty-four years how did I last?
Remember wishing the end would come fast
Instead of having to deal with life's wrath
Now times are not so rough
Thankful that I never gave up
Despite how many times I had had enough
Physically weak but I stayed mentally tough
At times the pain seemed endless
That the light outside had somehow vanished
Thinking about how I could no longe manage
Pain and suffering created a sick marriage
If only life had not been so crazy
The smallest things would still phase me
The man in the mirror no longer hates me
Addiction gone, he now lives freely
