I Am (Not) My Addiction

I am ready to make myself whole,

I am ready to make you porous.

I am ready  to clean myself up and clean myself out,

Relapsing, relapsing and burning again.

I am  ready to give in..

I am ready to be powerful again. 

I am ready to love who I am as a brand new woman.

I am not my addiction.
