I keep thinking of ways to find peace
and, control those neural
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?
