RECOVERY REINVENTED

Stripping away pride humbled
going inward and withdrawal
finding soul embers burned
discarding old memories
developing new beginnings
tearing into submissiveness
gathering weathered matter
weak to strong to stronger
within one’s self required
basics rediscovered deep
recovery reinvented the me
separating past and present
tomorrow replaces today
lightning now only light
thunder beating to mold
nothing before structured
stripping away pride humbled!
