Recovery By the Numbers

Two more hours.
Twenty-two down,
two to go. How long
can one day be?
An eternity.

A thirty day chip.
How'd that happen?
Twenty-four hours
at a time. Seven hundred
twenty long hours.

Thirty days, sixty,
ninety, six months
then nine. A year
I'm clean! A bumpy
ride but worth it.

Hard to recall the darkness.
Eighty-seven thousand
six hundred hours
one at a time.
Ten years of recovery. Wow.
