Dancing With The Devil

Updated: Apr 28

The sneaky sadistic and alluring grasp addiction has on souls is the most pungent yet persuasive prison one will ever humanly know as long as the heart continues to pump venom and blood through your veins. The physical and psychological chains, shackled once Pandora’s box has been open is indescribable, unless you’ve lived this fiery hell sparring Satan himself and victoriously crawled into God’s Grace and sobriety. Countless battles, losing many, but winning that war makes you a survivor. Scathed with scars; most don’t weather to tell the tail. I did, and now today have been blessed with opportunity to show the weakened, the wounded victory that lies ahead if they so choose this courageous path...if they survive. It’s crazy sitting on the other side of dancing with the devil; how pain stricken with anger and sickened with sadness I get when I watch the insanity. The deathly hallows that orchestrate what I call “the hamster wheel” of perpetual pain, known as addiction. In and out, in and out; until life or death prevails.

1.) Choosing life

2.) Self forgiveness

3.) Perseverance

4.) Fight

5.) The greater good

6.) Blind faith

7.) Unconditional love

8.) Elise Corinne

9.) My wife, and fellow warrior

10.) My family, the fact that they still love me let alone talk to me is beyond me and the only answer is referred back to my gratitude #7.

All we can do that made it by the wisps of sanity and the threads of our souls is continue to spread the word of peace, pray for their souls, and lead by example. And if no one has told you they love you today...I love you.

Yours truly,


Anna
