New Me This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


I am fighting an addiction
Gaining tools to keep it away
I realizeit's not about time
It's about having a clean, sober day
Drugs no longerclouding my mind
As they have done before
I'm willing to leave the pastbehind
And step through that open door
No longer causing pain andsorrow
As I have done many times
Walking that path you have wanted me tofollow
Not committing any more crimes
I have finally found serenity
Apeace within myself
I picked up the pieces of my life
When I thought therewas nothing left
A whole new world I have yet to discover
I'm preparing forit now
As life starts to unfold and uncover
The old me is turningaround
This is the new me
