Finding Peace

I keep thinking of ways to find peace

and, control those neural

influxes.

Those little connections

those nodes going

click, click, click

sending messages that I should

be angry or sad or upset,

and the rest of me doth protest.

I want to be kind. I want to be patient.

I want to be loving and accepting.

I want to be a good listener. Warm.

Friendly and easy to talk to.

I want people to think that

when something is troubling or

they don’t know who to talk to that

they can talk to me and

I’ll be able to understand that it means something.

It gets cold and

driving into Portland was a

misty foggy wet and dark mess.

How can I learn to walk on clouds?
