***THE BATTLE by ALEXANDER ALCALA’ ***

YOU POINTED ME OUT,
YOU MADE MY PROBLEMS CLEAR.
STRIPPED ME OF ALL DIGNITY IN FRONT OF MY FAMILY,
AND EXPOSED ME TO ALL OF MY PEERS.
I WAS DOWN ON MY KNUCKLES,
WITH THIS SICKNESS THAT SHOOK ME TO MY CORE.
I WAS TOO STRONG TO ASK FOR HELP,
BUT WEAK ENOUGH TO ASK FOR MORE.
YOU NEVER HEARD ME CALLING OUT,
BECAUSE IT WAS ONLY A MERE THOUGHT IN MY MIND.
AS THE CHEMICALS DANCED AROUND UNDER MY SKIN,
IN MY VEINS THEY LIVED AND INTERTWINED.
THEY SAID IT WOULDNT BE EASY TO QUIT,
THE FACT OF THE MATTER IT IS WHAT IT IS.
THE ONLY REASON I EVER QUIT,
WAS BECAUSE I WAS FORCED TO LEAVE HER AT HOME WITH THE KIDS.
NOW I SIT HERE AND TRY TO CHANGE MY LIFE AROUND,
BUT THE REAL PRESSURES ON NOW THAT IM SOBER.
THE MORE I THINK ABOUT IT,
THE MORE I WANT IT.
BUT I CANT ALLOW MYSELF TO START THE CYCLE OVER.
THE BATTLE……
