What A View


The 12th Step of CODA states, "Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to other co-dependents, and to practice these principles in all our affairs."


What A View


once the wall was removed
the view... the visions
came alive
like a child in a candy store
wide eyed with excitement

the sky was brighter blue
the wheat grain a blinding gold
blowing in the breeze
a land locked ocean
but the beauty came from within

never visioned this thrill
an experience... finding the soul
no longer in need
no longer an obsession
to control... to own

no longer lonely
but yet... alone
a trust built upon
the spirituality of love
and a sense of belonging

a relationship with the One
brought warmth and comfort
and the knowledge
that love was a choice
... not a need
