The Naming

(Italicized stanza to be sung in a sing song voice)

Dark thing,

Moon shadow,

Denial, Defeat, Death

Reside inside thee.

Hiding in thy opaque.

Quiet cacophony of defects

Slithers in the darkness,

Strangles with distress

And seeks always to

Isolate

And

Kill

Me.

Trapped in thy dark,

I ate to survive,

I ate to die,

I ate to survive,

I ate to die.

In desperation, I groped in darkness, guided by Higher Power

To find the rooms, fellowship and the

Blessed freedom of abstinence.

The light of recovery shines full in me

And Higher Power blessed me with knowledge,

With Naming –

Dark thing,

Moon shadow,

Umbra, you are disease.

Disease, you are….

Disease, you are

Umbie, umbie, umbra,

Yes, I can be free.

Umbie, umbie, umbra

Just give myself to HP.

Umbie, umbie, umbra

Yes, I can be free.

Umbie, umbie, umbie,

Umbie, umbie, umbie,

Umbie, ubmie, UMBRA!
