Just leave yourself open to the possibility
That one dawn you wake to fi nd your mind clear,
One dawn you win back the love you derailed,
One dawn you kick the habit of blaming yourself.
One dawn you will wake to hear a clear signal,
A wavelength unmuffl ed by inference or static,
You will recognise the DJ’s voice as your own
Advertising a unique extravaganza treasure hunt
Where each clue is a signpost through your past.
You will walk through a maze of sleeping estates,
Collecting golden tickets concealed amid mistakes
Made when addiction stopped you thinking straight.
That dawn, when fi gures emerge amidst the chaos,
You will walk forward, unafraid to embrace happiness.

Words: Dermot Bolger
