Cultivating Sanity

Bubbling cauldron of desires, fuelled by impulsive fires.

Flames of self-blame encouraging shame, attempting to justify needs is a losing game.

A cycle that will spiral into a recital of spiteful trifle.

Devastation for this unruly mental inflammation.

Existential crisis from too much self contemplation.

Silence these voices, you will see more choices.

Creative solutions to these fears and pollutions.

Live with shadows but see in the light, take a deep breath and you will sleep better tonight.
