Example of Understanding
That feeling you get when all your emotions
start to swirl,
everything upsets you and all you seem to
encounter is turmoil.
That feeling in itself is hard to stop,
controlling one’s emotions is hard to do.
Once you can accomplish this,
not much upsets you.
You respond in a calm manner and tone,
an example of understanding is shown.
Not all will accept this way,
for they live with too much anger day to day.
Their own failures they do not admit,
so they take it out on the world and treat
people like shit!
True and sometimes harsh words are meant to
be said when others hurt you so bad,
How else would they ever know?
Life is more than their minds delusional reality
Once again it can be said to be true:
Deceptions of the mind can cause an eternity
of strife –
Slowly robbing you of this precious thing we
are blessed to call life!
