Freedom Through Pain

The first promise of AA is, "If we are painstaking about this phase of our development, we will be amazed before we are half way through."

Freedom Through Pain

a journey to be born again
I found life through a new friend
the steps taught me a new way
now I don’t fear a new day
no ones better then You
the amount of pain I’ve been through
amazed by how far I’ve come
teach me… I’m no longer deaf and dumb
a path You have set before me
a light at the end of the tunnel I can see

just words when I first walked in
they wouldn’t work for me… to many sins
but here I am… comfortable and strong
Your guidance… I need all day long
the sky is not always gloomy and gray
I’ve listened to the words You’d say
this promise has come true
because of faith in the group
and especially You
