"I have always felt a little bit different, like I didn’t fit into the environments I was in. Many years passed as I wore a mask to fit into society. About 12 months ago that all changed. I had someone inspire me to look into spirituality. I started reading, meditating amongst others things. I haven’t looked back, I feel I now understand who I am, what I’m about and want to help others do the same".
Calm Down Mate
The heart beats, my eyes narrow
Breathing heavily, mind shallow
Rage pulsating, blood felt through my skin
My head starts to hurt, throbbing within.
I pace the floor trying to calm down
My blood is boiling, my anger felt all around
The more I think, the angrier I get
Not even and ice bath, will cool my head.
The volcano builds, it's about to explode
Lava on the path, which I chose.
I’m surrounded by snakes and thieves
Stealing for their personal needs.
They push my buttons, torturing my soul
I am fine, when I am alone.
Knowing I’m letting others control my emotions
The anger of this realisation
Turns to myself.
Why am I letting these imbeciles
Affect my health?
Their thoughts, beliefs and ignorant opinions
I shouldn't let them get me down
Followers, strong only in a crowd
But weak when a lion is around.
Starting to learn, I am the problem
Allowing 3D behaviour, to possibly get me in trouble
I need to step back and rise above
I’m better than this, why am I in a huff?
My awareness hits, the understanding made clear
I am in control of the emotions I hear
A few deep breaths, then clear my mind
The boiling blood, now simmers
I'm relieved to find.
Anger is a human feeling
I lost it today
But learnt from the experience anyway.
I’m sure it will happen again
However I will remember
Not get caught up in life’s illusion
And behave better.
