Opening The Door



The 10th AA Promise, "Fear of people and economic insecurity will leave us."



Opening The Door

hiding in a dark room
fearing that I would be found
my secrets exposed
that I was scared of people
scared that the game
would be revealed

no matter what I did
drinking... destroyed it all
yet... I couldn't admit it
that was the fear
I didn't want to face

today... those fears
are gone... no longer exist
alcoholism isn't a secret
paranoia... gone
a new world awaits

today... there's no fantasy
yet at times... reality bites
but it is real
and I'll muddle my way through
with His guidance and support

God is the only one who will bring us through our trials and tribulations. He needs our testimony in His world. Thank you for this one.

This is one I really still struggle with......financial insecurity ...fear of homelessness......I am far more at ease than what I was before having a HP in my life.....so I guess there is progress...just not perfection !!!

As an acoa I never felt secure. It has scarred me deeply for sure, but with the help of my 12 Step program and the wonderful identification with others like myself - I am healing. We are all healing together. A miracle.
Love your poems and writings Dave. They certainly hit the spot with me.
