Someone Mentioned…

By Bill

Someone mentioned that I had a problem, and I listened

Someone mentioned meetings, so I went

Someone mentioned honesty, so I tried to be

Someone mentioned willingness, and I thought I was willing

Someone mentioned meditation, and I thought about it

Someone mentioned phone numbers, so I got a couple

Someone mentioned calling them, but I didn’t want to bother anyone

Someone mentioned getting a home group, so I looked

Someone mentioned connecting with others at meetings, so I said hello to a few

Someone mentioned that I needed a sponsor, but I couldn’t find the right one

Someone mentioned 90 meetings in 90 days, but I had two jobs and I needed to rest

Someone mentioned the twelve steps, so I read them

Someone mentioned working the steps, so I read them again

Someone mentioned doing service work, so I went to a business meeting

Someone mentioned helping others, so I gave them advice

Someone mentioned making amends, but I was always the victim

Someone mentioned that I looked stressed, but I didn’t worry about it

Someone mentioned that they saw me in a bar, but I was drinking a coke

Someone mentioned that they hadn’t seen me for a while

Someone mentioned the obituary, but no one remembered me
