Think the outcome into being

When despair awakens me

In the middle of the night

And I feel my heart clenching shut

As I fear for my child’s life

Will he overcome addiction

Or will addiction kill him

I remind myself this emotion of fear

Is coming from a thought

Thoughts create our reality


I change my thought

And see my son

As a recovered healthy man

Surrounded by a good life

Laughter, children, a loving wife

A house, land, all he had planned

Then I close my eyes

Drift back into sleep

With an open heart

No more anxiety

E.A. Fussell
