Never Argue

.
“Never argue

with an idiot.

They will only

bring you down

to their level

and beat you

with experience.”

slow
just daft
not as fast
the dim light bulb
dumb

natures season turns
sunny hot and muggy days
mild spring is over

Poem:   

the promises come true only when we are willing to change
it is the people, places and things we must rearrange
the most important lesson is to change from me to we
it is wonderful to know that a new attitude is free

salvation for the addicted with a backward brain
restored to a new way of thinking that is sane
thinking of consequences before they react
sad that the science of the brain is still inexact

never again to be sorry or to be bored
for the lucky good relationships restored
miracles akin to the rising of the Phoenix bird
sad that the disease is stronger than the word

it matters not to what someone is addicted
the twelve step program can save the afflicted

Self

.

“Loneliness is

the poverty of self;

solitude is

the richness of self.”

change
move on
do it twice
try to or else
switch

springs chilly drizzle
sky covered by low gray clouds 
first robin appears

Poem:
.

quarter of a century in recovery
every day a new day of discovery
learning to accept all of life’s changes
enjoying the chance to be outrageous

I pray every day to walk the walk
sad are those who just talk the talk
it is easy to accept when God is in control
body, mind and soul He makes us whole

sobriety promises us many things
a chance to unravel the heart strings
a new freedom from past regrets
friends who we can count as assets

an attitude that includes no fears
a desire to be of help to our peers
happy, happy, happy for others
a choice to be part of a band of brothers

knowledge of feelings that keeps expanding
finding a God of our understanding
a kindness we are glad to  repay
living this life no other way
.
