The long walk back

from not knowing

how to handle a situation.

The long walk back

from not knowing

how to grieve.

The long walk back

from a life of degradation…..

The long walk back

from not knowing

or wanting to believe.

It is a long walk back

but the Sunlight of the Spirit

still shines.

We have walked through the pain to mountains.

We have Walked by the River of God.

Walk on and you will begin to know.

The lives with whom you trod.

We have been through the Valley of Darkness

We have been through the dark night of Soul.

We know of the struggle you are facing

We know of the ultimate goal.

Walk into the Sunshine when you are ready to take part.

Walk into the infinite mercy

Of the Master’s loving heart.

Reach out for the guidance

Reach inward for truth.

Keep walking on the path.

You are not alone.

We have climbed the inward mountains.

We have dug deep into the despair.

We have clung on to each other.

We have found a Higher Power that cares.

The long walk is not for the weary.

The long walk is not for the strong.

Trust in this band of brothers.

We want you to come along.

Recovery is yours for the working.

The joy is boundless and free.

I am grateful for my recovery.

Please come walk with me.

I need to be sharing and giving.

I need you to know it is free.

I need you to know my brother.

This time you can count on me.

The long walk is not easy.

The long walk is simple and just.

The long walk brings you home again.

The long walk with a Master to trust.
