Step Ten

 

"Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it."

 

Well like all the other steps I did not like this one either but having worked thru the others

 

Made this easer I had worked my way up to this clearing out all the wreckage of my past

 

making amends to everyone when ever and wherever possible why did I need this step ten ?

 

After all things were going great in my life did a lot of work accepting all my own faults

 

And changing things in my life I liked what I had become and saw no need to do step ten

 

Well I made the mistake of saying that to my sponsor fought with him kicking at every step

 

Wonder how I ever got any sobriety now I look back on this fighting I did with him

 

So he said you like what you have become do you think you now have all the answers

 

And you’re never going to make another mistake again that’s going to need an amend

 

you just make a big mistake when you made that stupid statement about step ten

 

And you already owe AA that amends the steps number one  thru twelve for a reason

 

Seems like you did straighten out most of your past but still have a lot of work to do there

 

And now you need to learn how to straighten out you present state of affairs

 

Our work on the 12 steps is never done until your laying perfectly still because then your dead

 

Now lets take this step and see what it can do for your anger depression hope love

 

Given back what was given to you. Life is full of mistakes and we need to look at our part

 

In every thing we do or say making sure we have not hurt anyone with our actions

 

The difference is step ten keeps us from doing the same thing we did in our past

 

God has given us the chance to make things right this day here and now as we do them

 

Step ten makes that a reality we do not want to return to old behavior and get lost again

 

Steps 10 -11-12 are the living steps of our program doing them right will keep you

 

From ever returning to your past God gave us the way out

 

And we need to use every tool He has given us
