Survival

There is sacrifice in survival,
And there’s pain in letting go,
In recovery there’s a feeling
That you still have far to go.
In illness there’s completeness
And a feeling you belong,
That completeness is receded
When you realise you were wrong,
When you see the world through new eyes
Like the eyes of those that care,
Then suddenly you come to see
The reason they were scared.
You want to make things better
But it’s hard because it hurts,
And you’re stuck between two evils,
Which is better, which is worse?
