Recovery is like a caterpillar
evolving into a beautiful creature.
Or like a spider that crawls up
a down spout
and gets knocked back to the beginning,
only to continue upward
refusing to give in!
Doors open and a whole new life emerges.
From your past doors close,
letting out light from its cracks,
so it may be remembered.
Recovery is not easy.
It demands discipline and understanding
continuous attention, and reflection.
A requirement of hope.
Recovery needs hard work and strength,
like building a home
with brick and mortar
Recovery is discovery.
You are an explorer
finding yourself in a new land.
Recovery is one minute, one day,
one week at a time.
It works if you work it.
