19 years of courage

19 years old and has seen more of the world than most
cocaine, alcohol, homelessness

street person
suicide attempts and powerful poisons
Saw a young man more courageous than I could understand

6 months off narcotics
1 month off the ganga
I want to make sure he goes farther
gets stronger
it gets harder

Dear god, I pray that you provide a path
text messages, phone calls and jokes to make us laugh

I know tools that can turn us from fools to masters
from derelicts, to people turned healthy from being sick
answers lie in the correction, its the truth to cure obsession

Addiction is the 2nd most powerful conception after connection
baffling and cunning
19 years of courage and lets keep going.
