Boundaries are borders
We draw to preserve,
The distance between
What's mine and what's yours

They keep pain out
and peace within,
And are a necessary tool
If you desire to win

This game of life
So complicated it seems,
As if heaven could only exist in a dream

These boundaries help us
create peace on earth
And remind us of our
Natural rights from birth

In recovery we're reminded of
this awesome truth,
So we own our power
with no excuse!
