Dodging the Bullets of Anger and Fear
Whenever I see my rage emerge afar,
I push it out my mind’s door ajar.
I have for sure become aware lately,
I think, reflect, and meditate; you see.
I know what triggers my anger so well,
I elude it quickly and prevent its spell.
Whenever I cut my strain it leads to calm,
A healthy life and workouts provide a balm.
From anger, I’ll turn my gaze to fear,
It too often throws my mind off gear.
Whenever I worry, I query how much is real,
It helps dispel the imagined ordeal.
The straighter the path of life I tread,
The easier and quicker I nix every dread.
It’s thus I make myself more fit each day,
To keep my anger and fear at bay.
