In recovery it is easy to "talk the talk" but it is another story to walk it...


 

 
 
I’ve read the books
I know the looks
I know what to say
Though that isn’t the way
 
I don't need practice to talk
There’s more to the program
It involves the walk
 
I can look you in the eyes
Tell you how well I am
Yet we both know... they’re lies
 
There are things I truly lust
Your friendship… your support
I need to learn to trust
 
I can write a poem or sing a song
Yet that means nothing
If I can’t admit when I am wrong
 
I can share my story
My experience, strength, and hope
Told with humility… not for the glory
 
I’ll listen in silence when you share
A message so powerful
I’ll understand… I’ll care
 
It’s easy to talk the talk
Quotes from a book may impress
That ain’t the program… that ain’t the walk
 
This walk I will take
You will see it…
The respect I give... it won't be fake

Honest words will keep me together
With your help and support
I can survive the stormiest weather
 

Listening to the thoughts… day by day

Step after step… a sanctuary in my mind

My Higher Power will always have the final say

 

Walk……. The……. Talk

Writing is always therapeutic. Well done, Dave.

I can sense in a split second when somebody isn't being true or honest re their journey in the program. Sounds arrogant maybe? but it's not. It's a little voice that tells me something just isn't sitting right. *smiling* What's the point if there is deliberate dishonesty? best wishes to you Dave.
