It’s difficult,

to channel the positive;

so that it hangs on every word,

or blossoms into something that  inspires awe.


When anger, frustration, helplessness invade.

Clear waters of the mind flow away from thought;

negativity takes hold.


It wounds me too;

to watch the negativity kill,

a moment, a thought, a dream.
