How do I change the game
From sending in the pinch hitter
To reliance on a higher power?
To maintenance of serenity
Over management of crises?
Even though I'm doing better
I'm still driven by desperation
Fleeing from a negative
Rather than drawn to a positive
Do I even know what that positive is?
I have never asked the question
So I cannot pray rightly for it
Perhaps that is the first thing I should ask
My higher power to show me
Before I wind up needing it
