These Rooms

These Rooms

If you're walking by on a windy day
And you hear some laughter in the air
You might stop and ask what is going on
In that little room back there

You might think to yourself what a happy bunch
Must be a party of some kind
But unbeknownst to the person outside
It's a place most will never find.

It's usually a little old room
In the back of a church or a unity hall
With all kinds of beautiful people inside
People named Marty, Candy and Paul

It's a room that's filled with laughter
But it has its share of tears
We gather there with each other
And we conquer all our fears.

The walls have words of wisdom
There's coffee and a snack or two
The room is filled with experiences
That we share with all who are new

It's a room where we celebrate victories
Over a disease that baffles our mind
In this room we share our shortcomings
To unlock the shackles that bind

So if you're outside and that windy day
And you no longer want to hide
Push away those thoughts of worthlessness
And walk yourself inside.
