Care for myself

If I want a life of true wealth I need to take care of my health. For years I hurt my body with my inebriating ways, which caused me to run astray. I had no care for myself especially my health. I lived as if I was invincible and life was just so simple. I had no desire to handle any responsibility, and lived my life very foolishly. Now in the present I am having to deal with the repercussions of my past, which feels as sharp as shards of glass. I have to continue to fight unhealthy desires, that seem to be unquenchable fires. Sometimes it feels like I'm drowning and struggling to keep my head above water, but I know the one above won't let me falter. As long as I stay connected to my strength above he will always provide me with enough.
