I see the beauty in the world

‘round and ‘round as I twirl

faster & faster until I fall

fascinated by it all

but where am I now?

Sad, lonely, and confused

wondering to myself, "What shall I do?"

And then appears a road before me

to guide me ahead

"To a CoDA meeting"

It had read.

In the room so calm and quiet

I found peace and knew by it

for there were people good and true

who understood what I’ve been through.

Accepting me as I am

sharing experiences they all have had.

Allowing me to grow and learn

and it’s knowledge I have earned.

To know myself a little more

to trust in God again and what he has in store.

As I grow to learn

acceptance of me

through the steps I flow

sometimes fast, sometimes slow

who will ever know what I’ll become

but I will be glad to know

that I always have a place to go

here in CoDA!

In CoDA, I will see

that there will be a better me!


Maria I (Date Unknown)
