I reach out my palm and you touch my heart. Together we make a valiant start. We guard against any halfway measure As we embark on this journey together. We’re raising the banner for spiritual living, Changing our actions from taking to giving. Our hands and our minds retreat from the fridge; The past becomes water under the bridge. Taking it easy and paying attention, We open our eyes to the fourth dimension. Recovery beckons, joyous and free: What happened for many will happen for me! — N.R., Maryland USA
