A Poem For Thought


Walking a fine line
Between wants and control
CoDA behavior
Is taking its toll
Knowing the difference
Of subtle motivation
Struggling with the battle
Of self preservation
Communicating the needs that I feel
Trying to grasp
The courage to heal
Committing to another
Without losing your soul
12 step guidelines
Keeping me whole.
