There were so many times when I would wish for a hot
I was always running from or to a different place and I
Would go days without showering.
During my bouts of spontaneous sobriety,
The detox's and pyschwards that I frequented would
And all the products to go with it!
I remember always taking longer than the time allowed...
The nurses or other patients would have to tell me to get
But I loved showers because I felt a little cleaner when I

You know how when you were little and not feeling good,
Or upset about something and a nice hot bath
Seemed to take care of all your worries?

Washing yourself clean.
Now when I take a shower it is a symbol of a deeper
And I am grateful to be clean today.
