Story at Ten

Step Ten – Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.


A Tenth Step inventory
is one day of my story.

Any harms have I done?
Did I help anyone?
Judged others, “If only . . .?”
Offered hope to the lonely?

To old grudges cling?
Or self-pity’s song sing?
My duties remiss in?
Did I talk more or listen?

Take more than I needed?
God’s will, did I heed it?
Did I sit quiet and pray?
And give thanks for the day?
