I sit here in the circle, looking at this collection of freaks and geeks,
all looking for the same divine inspiration everyone seeks.
We, the people you see, sitting all together trying to figure it out,
finding the way to recovery together – it’s magical, no doubt.
Every nationality, sex, and creed, some of the smartest people I know,
together we conquer addiction and with each other we grow.
Some of our darkest secrets are shared and lifted from our hearts.
Sharing together ways to get out of our rut and make a new start.
This gift we continue to share doesn’t cost a dime, not one due,
just share and help others by expressing what we’ve been through.
That inner peace and connection with our higher power is all we need
to cast out our demons from the past. Our souls are finally freed.
It’s work and then more work to keep ourselves from that life,
but these steps that we follow cut these problems in half with a knife.
I never have seen a group of people that mean so much to each other,
pushing each other to the fullest potential, like a father, mother, sister, or brother.
The dedication that I’ve seen from the ones that really try,
how they changed in such a fabulous fashion, makes me cry.
We start out as the worst versions of ourselves we’d ever been,
but if we stick with the program, nothing but blessings we will see.
This group of fantastic problem-solvers in AA can overcome it all.
We will fight till the end to kill this allergy and stand proud and tall.
