Steps of Life #1

Source of Inspiration

I dedicate these series of poems to the wisdom of the 12 Step programs.

Step #1 I am Powerless

My computer has a glitch,
I try this remedy,
then that one,
again and again I try
to no avail.
Help button remains unclicked.

I circle the city,
destination unfound,
hot car, need a bathroom,
temper is rising,
pride remains in tack.
I stubbornly refuse to
stop and ask for help.
I remain lost.

Sails are set,
wind is blowing,
I’m off!
Don’t know my destination,
never sailed a boat,
but I am full steam ahead!
Soon my epitat reads,
Lost at sea!

Where is the line between
arrogance and self confidence,
between willingness to try
and a need to see
when to ask for help?

Powerlessness does not mean
helplessness.
It means needing a Power
greater than my own.
