11 Months Sober

A Poem | Samantha Steiner

And I’m feeling so much more alive

I can’t say that I never miss it

Even after all this time

Because that would be a lie

But with every passing day

I’m feeling so much stronger

I can feel it deep inside

Just one more month to go

And I’ll be sober one whole year

I’ve learned to try to take things

One day at a time

And that I’m still me

Without using Vodka to mask my emotions
