Edward John


It's just twelve steps to sanity 
Yet it could take a life to reach

You are your own worst enemy 
Under a self-destructive siege

The peace overindulgence brings 
Is offset by the shame in life

Emotions ride upon a swing
While structure saves you from yourself

Regret and weakness circle round 
Despising feelings take their place

You bleed from an invisible wound 
Despite belief in saving grace

Somewhere very deep within
You wonder why God created such sin
