Mirror

I look at you and I point my own finger. It sure can’t be me, inuendoes they linger.
It is not them, I was told coming in, from what I can see that’s a hard thing to win.
Total self and my ego fight to keep my soul frightened, working so hard, steer me far from enlightened.
Accepting the things that I cannot change, drawn to others, to try and arrange.
Looking inside to work out right from wrong, so much self doubt, feelings come at me strong.
Amending the harms I’ve caused unto you, justifying, perhaps, you played a role too.
Praying to get outside of my mind everyday, looking to others asking God for the way.
People are human, flawed yet can thrive, to go and help some of us and others, survive.
The wisdom and courage to change the stage show, the director I give to the power I know.
Self seeking and fear that infinite thread would drag me along until I am dead.
So I trust in the process that has helped all of you, who understand, work hard and believe

Sunlight of the Spirit

There comes a time we all must say…
as we look into the mirror
“There’s got to be a better way…
to release me from my fear”

We admitted we were powerless…
and we’d go to any length.
Those simple words empowered us…
provided hope and gave us strength.

I heard Him say while on my knees…
“I’ll guide you down this road”
A place we pay no dues or fees…
Love and Tolerance is our code.

So much pain we had to feel…
we had to set it free.
Our Higher Power helped us heal…
and restored our sanity.

So give to Him your flaws and fears…
He’ll remove the dark obsession.
The things you lost you once held dear…
soon return to your possession.

We had to come a long long way…
from where we used to be.
There was a price we had to pay…
A priceless entrance fee.

Take my hand come walk with me…
We’ll trudge this road together…
The Road to Happy Destiny…
a spiritual endeavor.

We find a new design to live…
a change in attitude.
We freely give all we can give…
A life of gratitude.

Say to Him “Thy will be done”
You will know it when you’re near it…
A better life is sure to come…
In the Sunlight of the Spirit.
