        Climbing my own mountain I have found a ledge

        Care must be taken to stay clear of the edge


        As long as I stay on it I know I have relief

        It keeps me clear of danger from those rocks beneath


        When I first got on it, it wasn’t very high

        Life was not so good, in doldrums did I lie


        I gave my ledge a name, it was Recovery

        It kept me safe and sound, while I stayed gambling free


        Now my ledge rose higher, things were not so low

        But I must still be careful, to avoid the rocks below


        Now my ledge is wider, life’s a lot more easy

        But if I look down from the edge, I can still get queasy


        Because I can still remember, how hard it was to climb

        And when I tell you now, I’m doing it in rhyme


        I am quite happy, that I’ll never reach the top

        Being on my ledge, I’ll never have to stop


        Staying on recovery, I still really know

        That I must be aware of those rocks below


        Higher, wider on it goes; it is really good

        It gives me more than gambling ever really could


        We all have a ledge, you can find one too

        Come on up and join me, you’ll really like the view
