Chains Of Addiction
Breaking the chains of addiction,
are never easy at best;
For these chains are wrapped all around our thinking,
alwys putting us to the test.
We think we can find that one weak link
and live our lives as we choose;
In the end we find it was just a ploy
and our sobriety is what we lose.
The only true way to break these chains
is with the help of our higher power;
Giving us streangth and courage
to live each and every hour.
For with the help of our higher power
us slaves to addiction are free!
And the things we have are the things we need, ...
Why does this thing that we call time,
which fills us full of fear;
Mean so very much to us
and grow so ever dear?
Why do we fear the future
and the things that are unknown;
When we are men and women,
mature and fully grown?
Why do we fear tomorrow,
