[Sobriety is a journey]

Sobriety is a journey

not a destination.

It’s voyaging toward

the illuminating lighthouse

that safely leads you home.

Waves rock your unstable ship

threatening to overthrow you.

Salty sea stings dark eyes

filled with conflicted tears.

Frantically making way

to the far out place,

but that safe haven

is not what saves.

There is no smooth sailing

across these troubled waters,

decisions must be made.

Keep your faith.

This passage is crucial to life,

this journey to the light,

too many give into merciless seas

and don’t recover.
