Faith Workers

Strange to think
looking at these lines of ink

that once upon a time
all I wanted was a dime

to buy another drink
so I didn't have to think.

And then, from two men I never met
came a spiritual safety net

into a wasted life
full of pain and strife.

Suddenly, I was a part of A.A.
and there hasn't been a day

in 30 years come this July
that my heart doesn't cry,

Thank you Bob, Thank you Bill
for your lives that did fulfill

a faith that works for sobriety.
Many thanks from my family and me.



                       for Michael Jordan's "Couplet of Faith" contest
