Demons of consciousness defy intention
Renders you spineless in a dimension
Cancels self-confident energy of being
Blindfolds vision relegates seeing

Surly monster seems without end
Enveloping demanding you bend
Progress halted actions stop
Life is molasses you want to drop

Will it end this bottomless pit
Will you surface intact with wit
In this chasm been before
Daunting passage not what came for

Helping endure seeing the end
Resilience elevates it is friend
The ordeal ends finally turn
Lessons prevail you need to earn

Life not for the meager or weak
Nor the faint-hearted acting like sheep
Listen to voices follow your heart
Let life come unfolding as art

Cultivate wisdom be kind to friends
Hear with compassion serve make amends
Be patient humble no worry about trends
Take joy in hours connected to friends

How do you get beyond the overwhelm of challenging moods?

Can you anticipate situations knowing you will persevere
and thrive drawing on resilience?
