Una Mas

Written by Ellen Sanders


One more night
one more drink
one more laugh
one more something

One more line
one more hour
one more man
one more anything

One more hope
one more dance
one more pill
one more everything…

Is never enough


I wrote this poem in January 2003 (3 months before I got sober).  The simplicity absolutely characterizes addiction, at least my addiction: I was always In Search of More ( that’s the ism), but never finding.  There was very little hope left in my heart and I was simply existing on a hamster wheel with no idea of how to live different.  Little did I know that I would soon be walking a path to freedom.  And that this path would lead me to peace, wholeness, and grace.
