12 Steps (by Jeff Pirrello)
It took a million steps to get here
and only twelve to realize
i’ll never be the person you want me to be.
Those steps made me realize i am powerless.
There is no god to save me
or make me sane.
As i take a short inventory of myself;
my wrongs, my addictions and shortcomings,
i know there is no god in existence that would make
the mistake that turned out to be me.
My list is long
of the people i did harm,
and i am not going to make amends.
As my inventory grows,
i doubt i will admit i did wrong,
and probably continue to cause pain.
No prayer or meditation
will improve my contact with a higher conscience.
There is no spiritual awakening
because for me
it took me no steps at all
to realize it’s too late;
too late to be the me
You wanted me to be.
