My Insanity




Step 11: Prayer & Meditation

My Insanity

Postby tula88 » Tue Apr 20, 2010 7:00 pm

This is a prayer that is given out by a sponsor in AA just before they begin the second step. It is distributed by "Love Unlimited," but I have total approval by the copyrighted author to post it here.

MY INSANITY

And in the hour of my quiet desperation
I stopped, stood still, and looked inside
All my life it had been there...My Insanity

I lied...thinking I deserved the truth
I cheated...thinking I deserved to win
I stole...thinking I deserved to gain
I held on tight...thinking I deserved to keep

No respect for yours or mine.........
Thinking I deserved reverence

I was angry....thinking I deserved happiness
I hated....thinking I deserved love
I was proud....thinking I deserved greatness
I rejected GOD...thinking I would find purpose

Need I speak of the pain I've known
Need I tell you the fool I've been

My Insanity, I face....My Insanity I own
Please, help me down my new path
I'll never make it all alone.

The author's pen name is D.A. Kerekes, but she, and the story of how this poem came about is well known to me. Hope it helps. It helped me alot. [/b]

Hey Dallas,

Thanks for the welcome, and I'm so glad you like "My Insanity." After posting the prayer/poem, went to a meeting. Didn't think I would hear back from anyone last night, and now off to work. I will be back tonight around 8pm. Maybe Dallas, we can share some stories. :)
