Deep, heavy thoughts need bringing into check,
‘Lighten up, man’,
Says one from the flower power set,
Release the darkness,
Run and sing free
Be the best for yourself and our human family
Open a new book of life,
Turn to a blank page,
Allow unfettered thoughts diminish the rage,
Write freely,
With a flourish and also a twist,
Any word that appears you wish to dismiss
Thrust the dark feelings out from your mind
Be ruthless, grill yourself, be cruel to be kind
Train yourself
To see things in a far better way
And finish with gratitude;
Welcome the freedom of a brand new day

  2. Living in a country where there is such freedom it is still hard to appreciate the fear and torment that so many in the world feel living their less than ordinary lives. We don’t know how lucky we are.

    1. So true, Oldegg. The balance is definitely off… although things will change for the better for everyone soon. I’m sure of it.
