Is it really anger that is the source of pain?

Or is it just disappointment all over again?

Emotional thoughts of wrong doing,

Are sometimes just insecurities reappearing.

 

Finding the courage,

To refrain from becoming enraged,

Takes all the logical reasoning,

One has in its sole being.

 

Dealing with old habits can be a source of strain,

Defining new habits leads to positive gain.

Accepting the need for change

Opens up the opportunity to engage.

 

Dare to share

If you really care

Find the strength to overcome

And you will have already won!
