I know my demons,

And I've met yours.

I don't like your chances,

In this upcoming war.

All the pieces written for this book were conceived between March 2013 and January 2014. They are the Light and the Dark and all feelings in between.They are an expression of one addicts continuing journey in recovery. The poems contained in this book are inspired by people, places, things, vivid imagination and freed emotions. Hopefully, the reader will be able to relate to some of the pieces and find some type of inspiration and relief as they battle their own demons. Some poems will provide smiles and laughter. Some will provide words of wisdom or perhaps, make the reader shed a tear. While others may make the reader just scratch their head and wonder "Where in the hell did that brilliant idea come from?" Somewhere in this wonderful read , you will find that connection that you desperately need.
