A 12 Step Poem
I took Step One, began to moan
I can’t do this one on my own.
I took Step Two, began to pray
Restore me God, please now, today.
I took Step Three, gave up my will
Maybe God could love me still.
I took a Fourth, I looked inside
Nothing more would I hide.
And on the Fifth, I said aloud
I’ve done some wrong, and I’m not proud.
I took Step Six, and got prepared
To lose the defects, I was scared.
Now I am at Seven, take them away
My God, for this I do pray.
And on an Eighth, the list was long
Amends to make for all the wrongs.
I took Step Nine, put down my pride
Amends made, I will not hide.
Step Ten I take, each day I pray
I make amends along the way.
And on Eleven I pray to know
Each day His will, which way to go.
I take Step 12, I’m like a bird
To others now, I spread the word.
