“The strongest I have ever felt was the first time I said no to a drink. I have said no every morning since September 29, 2008.”

Today, Michael Lee celebrates seven years of sobriety. Check out his inspiring poem about addiction and recovery above.

This poem was performed and filmed at the Soap Boxing Poetry Slam in Saint Paul, which has recently joined forces with Button Poetry to create BUTTON POETRY LIVE, a new monthly show featuring some of the top poets from around the country as well as local performers. If you’re in the Twin Cities area, don’t miss our Grand Opening on Monday, October 5th at Camp Bar in Downtown Saint Paul. Tickets available here (for priority seating) or at the door.
