I have a new feeling inside.
It's strange and new. I have some pride.
At last, sobriety is here.
The first days were filled up with fear.
But now I'm happy with my mind.
For this feeling that I did find.
I don't want it to go away.
This strength inside of me today.
I know that harder times will come.
There will be times I will want some.
Now the truth is I've had my fill.
And that is where I get my will.
I've found a way I can get well.
People helped me up when I fell.
The battle, it is not done yet.
So I use any tool I get.
Thanks to those of you here for me.
Thanks for helping my eyes to see.
I could not have done it alone.
Overturning this giant stone.
I must thank you for your sweet touch.
It has helped me out oh so much.
I feel as though my mind is free.
I'm glad for my sobriety.
