I wrote this meditative poetry while holding a lapis lazuli gemstone and looking at the following pictures taken by my father in our backyard. I hope it instills a sense of tranquility.
Meditation to Cure Alcohol Dependence

Fighting the mental battle, meditation offers a solution with no side-effects.
