I was feeling inspired today. You know, that’s one thing I truly love about being sober. It feels so good and fulfilling to experience real emotions again. And it could be any emotion. I remember having a somewhat curious bout of constant crying spells about a month into sobriety. I know this has happened to other addicts, too, since we become so accustomed to soft-pedaling our emotions with drugs and booze. We never feel when we are active. Then, once our minds become cleansed of all the “synthetic” materials, we subconsciously make way for the inevitable flood of hyper-sensitivity.
This is such a creative and beautiful poem. Read it carefully:

Here’s to feeling!
