“Whatever our protestations,
are not most of us concerned
or our self-pity?”
BB p 62
It was all about me, the drunk.
The only friend I ever had was the guy
who bought me my last drink.
The only relationship I could keep
was with the needy soul who believed my lies.
Denial was the only argument that I knew.
If I was not standing over you, gloating,
I was under you wallowing in self-pity
and building a resentment that was
driving me to drink.
With the guidance of God,
the Higher Power of our understanding,
and the fellowship of A.A.,
we have discovered that there is a better way.
Today, be Honest, Open-minded and Willing
to do the next right thing and be the person
our Higher Power wants us to be,
a friend, a loving companion, a sober soul.
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.
