Looking for the future















Keeping my eyes uplifted to
my recovery program
the horizon
the moon
the daughter
the next poem
or
any thing that might engender
new hope and dreams
because when I look 
into your eyes
there is only fear, pain,
distrust, and betrayal that
is reflected back from my gaze.
