10 4 08; good riddance to bad rubbish

10-6-10 @10:31 am

you tried your damnedest
to keep me down
everything you knew would work
is what you sent around
you kept me punch drunk for years
with a flurry of lefts and rights
you stole a lot of my days
and even more of my nights
the final straw was the woman
you sent disguised as love
cause you knew that i’d damn near won
but all i needed was a shove
to put me back where you wanted me
in the depths of addiction’s despair
so you delivered what i thought i wanted
with the demon hidden behind a longing stare
i can’t believe i fell for it
and jumped head first and headlong
back into that dark cold place
that i knew was altogether wrong
but somehow you missed the signs
until the final hour
that were sent to save my soul
by a higher power
my real true love was guided to me
as was the greatest of friends
both designed to pull me out
so i could live again
without the pain and risk that comes
with a life addicted to crack
but with the happiness and joy
of knowing i made it back
from the very edge of death
and out of that horrible hole
that kept me for so very long
denying freedom to my soul

Artist's Description

oct. 4th 2008 was prolly the most important day of my life; @2:30 am that morning was the last time i did a hit of crack; i was with the woman mentioned in the poem, and almost blew off the days planned events. luckily the powers that be would have none of that, and 12 hours later i flew, as planned, out of laguardia airport bound for lake worth fla. and the life that had been mine all along. it took me just shy of a year to regain enough of myself to finally brave coming from there to louisiana to be with my one true love.
