Good work guys, though I seem to detect a bit of holiday sturm und drang.

Zero, you doing OK?

Would write something sunshiney, but the muse escapes me today.

i went to the city to see a band
and saw many people who could use a hand
to be homeless in winter
my mind would splinter
brings a new meaning to living off the land

Together we stand united we are
Always at hand never too far
My dear friends i love you you're one of a kind
There's nothing above you always in mind

Poems & odes were my saviour of life
I tried other threads But nowt would suffice
We poured out our hearts cried a lot too
But getting through that made me anew.

Dee was a godsend his comment made sense
Went to my docs anti ds to commence
Once they kicked in i felt more like myself
Slowly i nursed myself back to health

All it doth take is a kind lending ear
Once we commit there is nothing to fear
For we all fight this battle called alcoholism
The stigmas attached with such scepticism

We all must keep striving for sobriety
Hell! we've overcome such adversity
So join hands my friends from oceans apart
Cos each of you here have a place in my heart

Much love to all of you my limerick mates xox

Snoozy xxx

It's New Years Eve & the crowds will be pissed
I can tell you it's nothing I've missed
No morning of dread that vile day after
No alcohol needed its natural laugher

Why didn't i wake from my 10 year nightmare
Not giving a Shitt i just didn't care
My daughters they took a firm second place
For this reason alone an utter disgrace

What right minded Mum puts her booze before kids
Wine bottles yes please off with the lids
Once my mind set on the mission ahead
It's time for my wine you kids off to bed

I'd still read them books and kiss them goodnight
See i was a good mother , bullshittt , yeah right!
I'd lulled myself into feelings of illusion
Surely there was a better solution

I've learnt to forgive myself after time
& make amends with these children of mine
It hasn't been easy I'm a work in progress
Thank God i have finally cleaned up my mess

The proofs in the pudding Its 18 months now
Why was i lucky i just don't know how
Not all of us make it I'm blessed i was one
My horror is over my new life's begun

No longer do i look at 10 wasted years
The love i have now brings me to tears
For out of the bad came something so good
So I'll be the best Mum i know that i should

When i got a text from My daughter that day
I'm proud of you Mum , you've come a long way
I love you so much your my whole world to me
That's all that i needed those words set me free .

You know, I've only seen Tosh.O once! Great minds must think alike, I guess!

Before us, the New Year awaits
Who knows what will be our fates?
None can say what this year will bring
But I'm sure of one thing
Now that we're sober, hope will be out mate
