Brimming

“Brimming.

That’s what it is,

I want to get

to a place

where my sentences

enact brimming.”

Poem:

through the rapids and over the falls
life giving water courses through all
even the human body averages sixty percent water
but it is the soul that contains all that can matter

to keep your soul in that happy place, love
place all of your faith in a Power from above
always striving to live life on God’s terms
the happiest know how to take turns

recovery is to satisfy body, mind and spirit
an unfounded fear of change will inhibit
everyone wants happiness, no one wants pain
you cant have a rainbow without some rain

are you ready to accept todays changes
every day demands emotional exchanges
yesterdays sobriety is not guaranteed today
it is for strength and courage that we pray

emotional strength means we are willing to accept
to cleanse the soul we have wept
courage is the faith to face the unknown
with love our spiritual foundation has grown

today, allow your soul to fly happy and free
be the person your God wants you to be

Suppose

“Suppose you were an idiot,

and suppose you were

a member of Congress;

but I repeat myself.”

Poem:

.

To learn humility and patience
one must first learn obeisance
there is a God today and it is not me
doing His will is really the key

begin by obeying the golden Rule
it is so satisfying to go old school
the long timers share experience, strength and hope
let go and let God, a new way to cope

another great tool is the Serenity Prayer
practicing patience as a daily affair
having the courage to change your mind
completely, totally to God’s world resigned

learn to listen and listen to learn
speak from the heart when it is your turn
know that a loving Higher Power will do for you
miracles, faith, a chance to live life anew

humble is thinking and doing for others
share your gifts with your new band of brothers
