AUTHOR’S NOTE: Step Seven of the Twelve Steps of programs such as A.R.T.S. Anonymous is, “Humbly asked God to remove our shortcomings.”  

(Feel free to use other terms such as Higher Power, another deity, Universe, Love, etc.)  

Wait a moment.
Aren’t I supposedly
a perfect child of God?
So, why do I need to vent?  

Wait a minute.
Aren’t I supposedly
made in God’s image?
So, what do I need to admit?  

Wait an hour.
Aren’t I supposedly
God’s masterpiece?
So, why turn over my power?  

Wait a day.
Aren’t I supposedly
fearfully and wonderfully made?
So, when am I supposed to change my way?
