One Day At A Time - Poem by John Overman

It was a few 24 hrs. ago I met a group of people that accepted me for who I am a human being no less or greater than.
For those people showed me how to live a life on a simple way
showing me how to control my volcano pressure valve
I use to call anger on a 5 minute at a time scale.
For if I knew when I met this group of people how much they would enrich
my life and love me unconditionly until I could love myself the way
this special group of people could. They cross my path on a regular basis, for I chose to spend more time with them today
for we can say excatly what we think or feel and not have to worry
about stepping on anybodies toes today.
