The demons won.
She would have tried and tried, over the years. Made promises to herself and her family. She would have thought, I can do this!
And she kept sinking back down again. Into the black.
It's a siren song. The world is hard for all of us - the junkies and alcoholics make their world so much harder.
I wish she knew that recovery was real. It exists. There are things in your life that feel more exquisite than any pill, any shot, any drink. It's true, I have seen it and felt it with
my own eyes and heart. I don't believe in a lot, in life. But I believe in this and I wish she could have too.
Fare well, Amy.
