Day 169 • Did They Know?

I'll never forget the laughter of the wise men in that first meeting (One Night in Missouri) and the seriousness with which they accepted my visit. Some even reached out to me days later. They had something I wanted; they were free of something from which I wanted to be released. Those guys were a gift from my Higher Power and together they brought me back as much as anyone has. Yet, I must remember that my addiction accelerated after that. It became bolder and more dangerous, and truly self-destructive. But I always remembered that meeting and continued to seek out one like it near my home, even as I continued to expand my secret life.



What would they do if they knew

The pressure of perfection

Was heavy and hard to bear

Would they care
