Who I am

I've looked through every magazine and self help book
I've looked through every recovery group and blog
Googled myself a million times; sobriety, sobriety girl, recovery, recovering

And I still haven't found who I am

It will never come to me in a search que, website or fourteen question survey to diagnose my addiction

When I reach into my soul
Brief times
Lately, rare times

 I see a glimpse of who I know I can be
And hold my breathe

Waiting for the day that I release myself from pain

The day has come
I know who I am
And where I belong.

That was really good. I have done the exact same thing. Frustrating, isn't it? It will come. Just wait. Patients is not my best attribute.
