Are you one of the people who believes everything is fate?
So, let your life just slip you by, as you sit around and wait.
Do you believe your future, is written in the stars?
So you don’t have to try too hard, or push yourself to far.
If you think what happens in your life is down to destiny.
To just accept that’s the way it is, is such a tragedy.
At the height of my addiction, all these things were true.
To blame everything and everyone, there was nothing I could do.
But then I found the secret to the life I thought was stole.
It really was quite simple I just had to take control.
Simple, but not easy, with hard work along the way.
But now I have my life back, and get better every day.
BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on August 11, 2019:
Nice one. It takes a lot of control to fight addiction.
Your work here displays the desire and hard work needed.
I do like to believe that fate has a role to play, but not by sitting and waiting for it to control you. More like, something or someone was at the right place to help with this decision...to me that is where fate stepped in.

Welcome, drylen! I am glad that I can read another great poet! You are, my friend, you are! Thank you for sharing!
A hero is someone who accomplishes to take control of his life, beyond excuses!
