Fletch, I felt the raw emotion right through this...You are a lovely man and I can tell you that every time I read a comment from you or read one of your poems I find myself smiling...I always did...You have a natural warmth aboutyou that travels through the screen to others.
I hope you will learn to love yourself as others love you

It is hardest to fogive oneself Fletch. Thank god for your grandad. Love is right there in fuzzies..always was always will be for iits part of your warm loving heart my friend. I am blessed to know such a wonderful man. Drugs blot out many things but the problem still hurts when reality sinks in. Better to face the hurt head on and move forwards as you have done. I am proud of you takes a lot to come clean hun

Fletch I think for me this is your greatest writes....
I identify with the pain of drugs, (My father).. Alcohol..(My Mother), and even the not forgiving me for many things that others did, and I could not do a thing to help...
It has taken me a long time to forgive just me.. It came at the lowest point in my life, and a helping hand was there for the moments of unshed tears held way too long..
All do love you and are there, as India said..
Much love and big hugs...
P.S. I have my fuzzies on right now..

Drugs delay the grieving process but once sober, the pain is right there like it was before a person's reality was altered. Thank goodness for your grandfather's fine example of forgiveness. We are hardest on ourselves...especially when we are genuinly remorseful. Heartfelt penning Fletch...so raw and honest.
