GOOD-BYE FOREVER TO MISS COCAINE

By Thaerius Berry, Army

Writing Type: Poem

This letter is to say good-bye. I've made up my mind
that I don't need you in my life any more.
Things I see in stores that I want to buy
and places I want to go, I can't,
because you take all of my money.
I'm tired of being broke and wearing dirty clothes
because I can't afford to wash them,
and going hungry because I can't buy food.
I've been introduced to a Higher Power
that gives me hope, joy, inspiration
and teaches me how to be honest with myself.
I will not miss you, Miss Cocaine,
because I've also found something
to keep me busy to fill that void.
With me working with my Higher Power,
I will never need you in my life ever again.
Good-bye forever ... I'm in recovery.
