My Therapist Said
My therapist said
that in order for me to grow,
I must get to the bottom of my addiction,
and that’s the only way to go.
He said it may take up to a year
butI didn’t want to wait.
Once I got home I right away started,
and boy, didn’t I do great!
First I got to the bottom,
than to the middle of it,
then cleared stuff from up there.
What a great job I did!
Surely not a year, not even a day,
and I’m already at the top!
And I am really proud to say,
I grew! A lot!
