so i am to do battle with painful thoughts today
they are upsetting my peace and stealing it away
I don't know what to do for I am so very weak
They condemn for the healing that I pursue and seek
I know what i will do but its hard to break away
I must get to my safe place there is no other way
I have all these old thoughts dancing around my head
Accusing me of betrayals and filling my heart with dread.
Why all of a sudden should things like this appear
Its not the beginning of therapy; what brings all this here?
Whatever be the cause I will try my very best
To slow down the process so I can get my rest
To the lake front I'm going within the silence of my heart
And there I will stay until the demon thoughts depart.
The waters are so peaceful that they sparkle in the night
The moonlight transforms them into an optical delight.
Already I'm feeling calm; and try to breathe in peace
Letting out all the negative out as I exhale and release.
Again I breathe in pure air as I ponder by the lake
And release all the negative before another breath I take
What a wonderful thing to emerge from such a fight
That robbed me from my sleep and carried me through the night
I feel i have come out better for having gone through such a war
I am feeling a bit stronger and am not tempted any more.
