I am a drunk

I am a drunk

Who found God’s grace

I found Love

I am here

I accept you

I don’t care about your religion

I don’t care about your race

I don’t care about your sexuality

I don’t care about your appearance

I don’t care about your income

I don’t care about your IQ

I accept you

When you are down

When you are happy

When you don’t care

When you are seeking

When you question

I accept you

I will wait

I will be honest

I will be forthright

I will be open

I will be here

I accept you

Because I found Love

I found hope

I found peace

I found honesty

I found serenity

I found God

I found Love

When I found out that this World doesn’t revolve around me

I found out this World doesn’t change to suit my desires

I found out this World and the things in it aren’t my

I found this when I found Love

I opened my eyes and saw

I saw that titles don’t matter

I saw that money doesn’t matter

I saw that the pretty things I adore don’t matter

I saw that I am ENOUGH

I saw Love

And then…..then I saw you.

All of you here on this journey of life with me

I see your hearts

I see your gifts

I see you past your body

I see past your emotions

I see past the things of this World

Through you I see my purpose

And this, this has taught me Love

I’ll forever be grateful

      It’s writers such as yourself who have truly helped me to reignite my passion of writing. Thank you Galit for being a part of my blog journey since the early days!

    A beautifully written post. This is a topic I’ve been ruminating on and haven’t been able to find the words. You did. Nicely done! I’m a year sober now and, like you, have perfected the art in finding the best in everyone and just flat out accepting them for who they are — it’s funny how people never believe that or trust it though — we all walk around feeling so undeserving of love.

      Oh Heather, CONGRATS on 1 Year!!
      People really don’t trust my acceptance much of the time…therefore I wait for them. Once they begin to see their own beauty they will realize.

    I have a relative who used to take me to his meetings. When I was about twenty I saw him receive his 50 year chip. I don’t think that I really appreciated back then what that meant.

    Anyway, I really enjoyed your poem.

    Your honesty and vulnerability blow me away. Thank you for sharing your heart and making it a little easier to share mine in the future.

    I just reached 5 years sober, and I wouldn’t have made it without people like you descibe, people like you. Thank you.
