When we thank the Lord a wordbank

There is a subtle difference

Between recovered and recovery

You must have a spiritual awakening

To be happy, joyous and free

Working the steps is the solution

For your obvious fate

Carrying the message
Try and relate

The Big books no good

If kept on a shelf

You must help others to recover

To recover yourself

Give away to keep it
Do your own part

You must learn to speak

The language of the heart

Our primary purpose
To ensure our own sobriety

Is working with others


You are never too dumb

But you can be too smart

Understanding and kindness

Will be a good start

Seeing others grow
Will be just one reward
There will be many others
When we thank the Lord
Author's Notes:
Thanks goes to my friend Karen for her word list.
Ok  try these: (sorry, they're phrases, not just words) any order you want.....
spiritual awakening
working the steps
carrying the message
helping others to recover
give away to keep it
language of the heart
primary purpose
ensuring our own sobriety
working with others
understanding and kindness
seeing others grow
