Places of the heart
Seeking comfort
In ways that can't satisfy
Looking to external in vain

Painful places to sit
Acknowledging desire to fill void
In counterproductive ways
Sabotaging the very thing need

Allowing self to be carried away
Exposure of Truth don’t want to see
To sit in ambivalence - torn
See what truly is

No more denying
Acceptance of what was
Of wrong ways to cope
Healing comes in surrender

Build no more idols
Knowledge can't save
Addictions won't save
Only surrender today
