Thinking about my sobriety.
Red,yellow,blue green and violet all the colors running through my head.
I can see all the many colors in my head because I am clean.
I can see all the colors because most times I am more serene.
Well I am learning to be serene,this is a new way of life.
This is a new way of thinking and being too.
I am sober today and it feels real nice ,well mostly.
Blood red,crimson red a fiery red that drives my will to live ,win and fight.
Yellow that keeps me mellow when I want to get too deep into my head.
Too deep into my head and drowning in my self pity.
Blue a calm blue that reminds me of the calm of the sea that helps keep me cool under fire.
Green but no longer that little green monster of jealousy that keeps me stuck.
Violet that reminds me that I am royalty because I belong to Jesus.
I am clean today and these are my many colors .
Glad I wrote this poem because it’s my honesty that helps me in my recovery.
