There are no improvements to the 10 Commandments,
Or the 12 STEPS… as they are known in AA,
How can you improve on the message from GOD?
When …both….from the BIBLE they came.
How to LIVE life is as SIMPLE as following,
These two BLUEPRINTS ….not too hard a task,
Yet, as humans we look for an easier way,
We take PILLS for our problems… that’s fast.
So, we search out doctors to get diagnosed,
As ADD, Bipolar, OCD and the rest,
PTSD, Anxiety Disorder, Depression….
And numerous diagnostic tests.
Today there are MANY diagnosed with these,
Well, look at the environment that surrounds,
Turmoil at home….movies action packed…violence,
Where can calm, peace and serenity be found?
For companies make DRUGS to fit every ailment.
Rather than LEARNING POSITIVE ways to COPE,
We pop a pill…..have no coping skills,
And society, itself, is on dope.
Of course, there are times when medication is needed,
However, today it is far OVERDONE,
Now it’s the norm … we turn to it FIRST,
Some doctors give ’scripts to EVERYONE.
Why don’t we follow the INSTRUCTIONS we have,
When it seems the world’s falling apart?
Beginning with GOD and sharing with others,
We have a BLUEPRINT….. that’s where to START,
When we’re happy we laugh….when sad we CRY,
When angry….we say what we feel,
We need to learn to deal with emotions,
In order to be healthy and heal.
Most of our troubles center in our THINKING,
For that is what makes us ill,
Wouldn’t it be healthier to LEARN how to live?
Then we wouldn’t need all of these PILLS.
