In reference to independence-

I don’t want it, it’s a hindrance.

If you don’t understand please don’t try.

This is for those who get drunk and high.

Paradoxes are coming this instant.

Substances are where we are dependent-

Along with ourselves, making us interdependent.

We must concede to our innermost self

That we’re living in a self induced hell-

And find an Almighty respondent, a higher power for instance.

There must occur, then, a transfer of dependence

From ourselves and the substances to one with omnicompetence-

A power, a spirit, a force greater than us-

Trust when I say that this is a must.

But also trust this doesn’t happen permanently, or all in an instant.

By giving us free will God made us independent.

We responded with self abuse, becoming despondent and dependent.

We must for ourselves try not to hinder-

In order to win we must surrender.

We don’t have to die, but rather we need to get to the point where we’re broken and need to be mended.

I’d rather then, and now do live a life in dependence. (God)

I’m not giving the option to substances and booze to end this.

Until I can thank Him as I look in his face

I’m content and happy to live in his grace-

As I choose to not live a life of self-serving, self-absorbed independence….

So I guess I’ll end this
