Lost In A Rage

Time To Bury Your Bad Feelings

Dig a hole and dig it deep

So all those sad and angry emotions have no place to dwell

They have to be squashed and it is never to late

Dig baby dig

When you think the hole is deep enough stop

Don't waste anymore time

Throw the anger of life in first

Followed by the resentment and pain

There is no shame

Take all these bottled up feelings and let them go

You are doing the right thing

No second thoughts

No looking back

As they fall in deep and sink in

They go into mother earth where she absorbs the pain

She will transform them into something wonderful again

She has been doing this for millions of years

Most people never give it one thought

Think of all the troubles that we don't see

They have to go somewhere ?

Where do they go ?

Magically disappearing through thin air

Now we help her along by digging a hole

This process works swell

When we bury someone we love we toss in all the suffering and anguish into the ground

No time at all we can see the grass turn green

The birds cover the ground looking for food

Nourished with goodness from the heart of life

As we watch worms slowly make their way to the surface

Taking the old debre and turning it into a rich soil

So mother earth can replentish it and give birth once again

This time to the most beautiful flowers and the tallest trees

There is nothing that doesn't grow without the help of mother earth

So next time you feel this way

Take my shovel and off you go

To bury your hardships and suffering

Walking away with a sigh of relief as these bad feellings are swollowed up

Instantly feeling a little better

Until we are rejoicing in the goodness of life

Dancing on mother earth like so many times before

Celebrating our freedom and the prosperity of life

Eiddwen To move forward with better thoughts and to dismiss the bad ones is not always easy.With practice it can be so pleasing.shiningirisheyes Dealing with day to day stress and pressures can make us crazy.If we put all our hostile emotions in there place we can function better and replace those hurtful emotions with great feelings that help us to get any job done.Thanx so much for reading and enjoying life and dealing with whatever may come.

Dim Flaxenwick You realize many of my poems and stories would just turn to a pile of dust if it wasn't for you reading them.I love when you share .I just wish I could give more.I will keep reminding you how many times I want to thank you for brightning my day when I have been down and out lost and confused.We all have our own faults and shortcomings but with help of our friends we find a way to see it through back to having fun once again.
