Switching off negativity is but a choice.
Consciously I can know this. So why do I push
The wrong button too often? Am I that far gone?
It’s the unconscious choosing what I decide on.
I’ve then made myself vulnerable to ambush
By what I’d never want. I can choose to rejoice.
What to do when unpleasant thoughts enter the mind
And begin doing harm there is just to notice.
Catching at early stages the onset of grief
Is preferred, but I’ll get there through my firm belief
That my choices made consciously can lead to bliss.
I can stop bad momentum when I’m so inclined.
Yet too much of a buildup of negative thought
And unhealthy emotions is not worth the fight.
Let that all fall apart, then create something new.
The next day after resting, a much clearer view
Will allow proper guidance to do what is right
For my health and wellbeing. This matters a lot.
Sensitive I’ll become more of feeling not well.
Anything I must do to curtail the effect.
Fun and laughter are useful in switching off dread.
I’ve complete control of what goes on in my head.
This technique I believe is worthwhile to perfect
And craft into a story I’ll be proud to tell.
