Poem: Messy

You’re not too messy

You’re not too messed up

There can never be an amount of guilt and shame

Nothing from your past

That will prevent us from

Loving you

Forgiving you

Appreciating you

Seeing the possibilities for change

Believing in you.

We can do it,

But the important question is,

Can you?

About the poem:

Until we can really love and approve of ourselves, nothing is going to change. How can you show yourself the true love you would show to your dearest friend? You deserve it. Healing begins when you grant yourself that love.

I heard this message when I attended the Al-Anon 12-step program meetings, again and again. We learned that we were not unique, and that others suffered from similar situations. In the 12-step programs, we learned how to share our strength, hope and experience. This powerful combination changes lives, cleaning up some rather messy situations!
