 Shared at an AA meeting
--a found poem--

We are the masters of
            self-deception for self-preservation.

I’m going to tell on myself because
            it’s okay to not be okay.

What’s a “new” person?
            If you believe I have a daily reprieve,
            I’m a new person every day.

Being dishonest
            is being brutally selfish.

Trying to be perfect all the time
            is making me just miserable.

I’m praying
            and things aren’t changing—
            but the way I see things are.
