Real

Freezes you in terror startles you to stone

Opens eyes to the fact you are alone

Spasms your whole body tightening your back

Screaming deep inside wanting to attack

 

Aggression surrounds asks for your hand

Think you can fight so take a stand

Steel yourself like girded rock

Inside ticking tightly wound clock

 

You realize the tension is you

That will not save the thing you do

It’s giving up not doing more

Letting go not being sure

 

Accept what’s happening in your life

Cycles we go through serene then strife

Recognize you are not alone

A force walks beside carrying your home

 

When fearful filled with tears and rage

You turn for counsel very sage

Look to heart find spirit inside

Have faith in wisdom trust have pride

 

Resist temptation to compare your path

You are unique soak in your bath

Trust lessons and what they reveal

Your journey is to what is real

 

Is the source of feeling incomplete or inadequate left from before you had your own consciousness and will?

Do you need to update the inner dialogue that generates these feelings and forgive yourself for actions based on childhood programming?
