I want to tell you about a book
A book that will save your life
It is a book that is written for Children
Brothers and Sisters Husbands and Wives.
It has no racial barriers
Big or small no matter your size
It is a book that is written for everyone
It is a book that tells no lies.
This book gives us hope and understanding
The reasons for what we did
It defines the meaning of alcoholism
And it tells us why we hid.
It helps us to uncover the truth
That we had hidden from so long
And it gives us the tools to work with
When we have to choose between right and wrong.
It is a book that tells of our journeys
To the perilous depths of hell
It is a book that describes the voices
The voices that scream and yell.
It is a book that gives us the steps
That we take one day at a time
It is a book of living spiritually
And in this book is where Iâ€™ll find mine.
