Insanity

When a man is insane,

He does not even realize that

He

Has

Lost

Himself.

So he continues to give himself away,

Over, and over again.

Until he can muster the courage to gather the pieces and recover,

He will make a fool of himself

With distorted thinking and unacceptable actions.

As long as he refuses (and perhaps he is afraid) to accept his many truths,

Not just the ones that boost his ego,

He may never really know what it means to be sane, recovered,

And in his right mind.

Everyone Suffers When Alcoholism and Addiction are Involved

When alcohol and addiction are involved

Everyone suffers

Everyone is sad and lonely

To some extent

At some point in time

Until the desire for sobriety and honesty becomes stronger

Than it does to endure the consequences of denying the truth and numbing the pain.
