That is one of the most moving poems I had the privilege of finding when I was early in recovery. Understandably it brought on a lot of emotional upheaval for me. The emotion is there for a reason and something as poignant as this poem helped me to release the emotion in a way that was beneficial to my recovery.
"Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting 'Holy Shit! What a ride!'" ~Hunter S. Thompson
