Stephanie, so self-aware and positive to come out and share your Bump story. You may feel like a mess but you also have your act together as far as understanding yourself, your ability to articulate it to others, and a strong spirit. We adore you you know. Anyone who won\'t let themselves become a hypocrite is admirable and on the road to wisdom. Lead on...

Do you not have a sponsor? They help.
Thanks for your honest poem. And everyone is allowed a lapse on your journey. The important thing to do is never give up

The Enabler
jarcher54 said:

Your courage is palpable. I suspect many of us don\'t even know we are enabling. How did you find that new desire?

Good solid write there, Stephanie, good solid sound advice.
I hope you don\'t mind the old light bulb joke (you\'ve probably heard it):
How many psychiatrists/psychologists/social workers etc does it take to change a light bulb? Answer: One - but the light bulb has got to want to change.

Orchard Street

Your poems are ABOUT things. I like that! You bring Orchard Street to life, so to speak. What irony, such a beautiful name for a flawed place. Take care and know you have friends!

The Crow
jarcher54 said:

You have a delightful, playful bounce to your verses, and you weave your own experience into the texture so honestly. This piece made me laugh and cry. I have a disabled son (Spinal Muscular Atrophy) who could walk poorly as a toddler and now his legs don\'t work at all. Legs folded under you like a crow\'s tail... such a powerful image. You go girl.

As SC has said crows are most intelligent birds and if in there lives they are given kindness they will always repay it.

Have a look at this film:

The Crow
Saxon Crow said:

Not being biased in any way shape or form but crows are very cool, highly intelligent, highly social. They have many spiritual and magical meanings. They remember.

Its good be like crow.

I like your poem, it strikes me as melancholic

It has been sometime since I have heard a more true account of a troubled addiction.
Please keep reality on this site.

what was their slogan
when they Proudly marched
showcasing their kneejerk reactionary: idiocy?
oh yeah:
\'Defund the Police\', I believe...!
and like, mind-warped Seal\'s
all those \'agreeable woketivist\'s\'
clapped and bowed..
now what, huh
now who?
they gona dial-up
or run, to....
thanks for sharing, dear poet

Doggerel Dave said:

That is one easy to read poem which flows nicely, Steph.
Sounds like it should be in Baltimore. But it’s not; probably in Alabama as far as I can tell…. Anyway, thanks for the heads up – I won’t be coming your way in a hurry….
Ah, look – sorry. Some situations are so awful that the only way to get round them is with some dark humour.
But what is to be done? Hopes and prayers don’t seem to hack it, do they? Nor do movements (are there any?) to ban guns and give those violent characters the opportunity for an education and opportunities.
Your only recourse is to put your work out there with some constructive suggestions as widely as possible, and…………………………Good luck!

It is so sad ion these times that violence on the streets is becoming so much more prolific, it is happening here in the UK as well. I do hope that some day love for all will come to our world.

I couldn\'t begin to imagine what it must be like for you guys. So much for the right to bare arms!

Good for you. The only consequence to be friend with a snake is to be poisoned to death.

jarcher54 said:

You hit the nail on the head with \"This poem is for my personal use.\" Yes, you share it, we experience it, but it\'s YOUR business, your confession, your declaration, your anthem. Thanks for sharing YOUR poem!

wording our truth
can be so cathartic and self-empowering
always: \'fight the good fight\',
admittedly your write is a little graphic in detail
but still, thanks for sharing

This must have been hard to post, your sense of being on the edge of tragedy and ruin is so palpable. What a journey in these almost four years. Don\'t be a stranger young lady.

My Choice of Poison
jarcher54 said:

Love your long wandering lines, very confessional, sense of urgency to tell your story. What makes craft into art is largely courage. Courage comes in many forms, breaking tradition, risking your popularity, responding to evil, challenging cruelty, or in your case baring your soul to strangers. I hope you feel safe and loved here, because you are.

Very strong write Stephanie, you have become a stronger person and now in control of your own life. You now have a wonderful way forward into your new life.

Accidental Poet said:

You\'re doing the right thing Stephanie. The only thing you want in control of you is you, not a pill or any other substance liquid, pill, weed or anything that makes you do things you don\'t normally do. And you\'ll feel better knowing that you are in control of you. Great write Stephanie. ; ) AP
