I am a 36 year old male who has lived a past full of abuse and pain but that has never kept me down two others and maybe a halter in their life but for me it's not complete opposite it has made me stronger today.

But you made it...

When I fall, you reach out your hand, and you lift me up to higher ground

You've opened my...

Curse of Addiction

For the rest of my life, cursed with this disease.
For all those who suffer, we just got to believe.
Believing in yourself is the hardest thing to do,
so take a look in the mirror and ask do you see you?
Every day and every night we hurt,

The Voice of my Addiction

Well, it's nice to finally meet you.
I've been waiting for your call.
I've noticed you've been crying,
And I've watched you pace the halls.

Whatever has been hurting you,
I can make it disappear.
You know you have nothing to lose,
