Harnessing Emotions

Harnessing Emotions

Appreciating
that solitary moment
when quietness encircles
your body
like a warm blanket
of comfort
A feeling of peace
and tranquility
to soothe
the weary soul
 
Kindness
Gentleness
Patience
Peace
Living in harmony
In an ephemeral
existence
inside your being
and taunted by
desires and emotions
 
With clarity of mind
the fruits of the spirit
stare back, challenging
Wild feelings alive
yet to be harnessed
Self-control and mastery
necessary
without which
all others
will be swept away

      Tank you Ivor. I think its a ‘desired’ state for many. We can all get there I suppose if we really try ☺️
