“We families of
keep few skeletons
in the closet.
Everyone knows about
the others’ alcoholic
BB p 125
Our secrets will keep us drunk.
If it has a name someone has already done it.
Under the influence we have done
many embarrassing things
but then again what drunk hasn’t.
We learn to laugh at ourselves and with others,
but not at others.
Today, do your fourth and fifth steps,
identify your character defects,
tell God and another human being
the exact nature of your wrongs
and clear the skeletons from your closet.
Recovery is one day at a time.
Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
ME and the Boss
And, if no one has told you yet today,
God loves you and so do we.
