Birthday Beatitudes (Sobriety Celebration)
monthly to mark milestones,
gather in gratitude with God-given grace.
Stumble in a scarecrow, straw for brains, stuffing spilling out.
Seek solace from similar sufferers who suggest a solution.
Determined to deny that drink, a day at a time.
Whine ‘why me’ – wisdom from winners will work if we want it.
We labor to lose liquor, learn to live and let live.
Faith over fear, find first things first.
Easy does it, decide to try another day.
Memorize our main mantra to mesmerize our mind:
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
and wisdom to know the difference.
