Marion L. Jones is the author of “Poems from within Me, a Recovering Addict,” and a motivational speaker who shares his story of how he made it through his circumstances, highlighting to audiences that there is a way out. Although the book has been a work in progress since 1998, the book became a full-time reality in 2006, a gift he says was given to him by God.

Jones is a former drug user and has been clean and in recovery since October 19, 2005. It was then that he realized that he could help others with his testimonial poems of encouragement.

In retrospect, he knows he was messed up as a child, as a result of his father’s death. During those painful times, he had no clue of the way his life was going and stuffed all the pain and hurt deep inside himself with no one to talk to about what he was going through. For a long time, he didn't even know himself, but he could see now that God was preparing him. Now with such clarity, he sees himself in his son who is sort of doing what he use to do but at a much earlier stage in life. Jones knows that he had to get clean and straighten up to be a better example for his son in order to keep his son from going down that same path.

By Marion Jones
(Recovery)

I was too scared to go outside; looking just that bad all I did was smoke and hide. I would wait until it got dark, because that is when the party starts.
But in the back of my mind something goes....
Click.
I can remember chasing the high of my first hit. Lost my whole paycheck, went into debt, and at the end having a fit. Constantly in and out of rehabs with no self-esteem, blaming everyone else for my drugging, I just did not want to stay clean.
Got a moment of clarity and something went....
Click.
It happen, I could not take it no more. With the Lord's help, I was able to put that pipe down and walk out the door. No more do I have to wake-up sick.
Listen... listen, do you hear it? ... ssshhhh, there....
