This is a book about addiction, this book is written from three different perspectives. The first is an addict's conversation with God, which I had submitted here earlier, the next is from the point of view for the addict themself, how to begin recovery when traditonal means do not work. The third is from the point of view of the addict's family and friends, it entails what to expect from the addict and non traditional ways to help the addict begin to recover while at the same time trying to maintain your own life.
I took a psychology course about a year ago and we discussed terror management theory, in which people are driven basically by fear of death or dying. I wrote this poem in hopes that readers will begin to feel less scared of death, although I give a pretty in depth description of how scary it can be, and ultimately more excited about being alive

Your Dreams Will Never FallWritten by Brandon Brawner When you dare to dream a different life,Your journey has begun;Step your feet upon the path,And walk into the sun. Shadows of doubt you cast away,To know that you will be;The purest form that exists for you,The breath of harmony. Search inside yourself to know,The power that you need;Transform from thought to reality,As you manifest your dreams. Your dreams will never fall from you,Your power will not die;Your heart is there to guide you through,The creation of your life. The journey makes us stronger,Gaining wisdom every day;We see a vision of a better world,And tomorrow is the way. You struggle through the challenges,You conquer all your fears,You step into a world of light;And shed a joyous tear. You have finally come to know,What is means to live;Wielding the fullness of your soul,You have a gift to give. Your dreams will never fall from you,Your power will not die;Your heart is there to guide you through,The creation of your life. It’s your passion that has brought you,Through the struggle you have made;Your transformation ebbs within,A chrysalis of change. Never lose the hope you had,You must always look ahead;Never settle for what is told,And dare to dream instead. Your dreams will never fall from you,Your power will not die;Your heart is there to guide you through,The creation of your life. © Brandon Brawner May 21, 2005
“Tommy, get in here this minute!” his mother shouted. “I’m trying to mum but I’m having trouble with Bonnie.” Tommy yelled back. “If she won’t come, leave her and hurry up inside.” His mother commanded. Tommy loved his puppy and was not prepared to obey this command. Tommy struggled with the dog in his arms and slowly made his way towards the house being guided by the light shining from the open door. When he only had about a hundred yards to go to reach the safety of the house there was a lull in the storm and an eerie calmness befell the area around the house. He stopped to look at the heavens and saw a beam of light coming from the clouds and getting brighter as it came nearer to the earth. He stood fascinated, watching the light coming towards him, fearful of what was to happen next. He could hear his mother calling him, as if from a long distance and as he turned to look towards his home he could see her reflection in the light of the doorway. He shook his head and started advancing once again towards the back door. As he was walking the light started to fade away until there was no light at all and he was left in total darkness. He called out to his mother and heard a faint reply, and then there was total silence. No sound of the wind or pelting rain, just total eerie silence.
