The Emotional Scale

The Continuum Of Feeling

I am bored with my whole life. It makes little sense.
The longer I exist the less I am enthralled
By what life has to offer. The matter with me
Is that I’ve lost connection. I would like to be
Who I am at my finest. I’m neither appalled
Nor delighted. I’ve lost the feeling of suspense.

I want to feel contentment. I want to let go
Of all that I’ve been pushing against. I am done
With the struggle and striving. I just want to be
Comfortable and wholesome within my body.
I can get there on my own. I’m the only one
Who can make changes to my feeling status quo.

My boredom is the tipping point to contentment.
If I can make that tiny jump I’m on my way
To releasing resistance to feeling better.
The appropriate practice indeed must occur.
Life for me can seem like a delightful ballet.
How I feel at the moment I cannot resent.

I know that things are going sufficiently well.
With that thought I can feel some internal relief.
Noticing the positive aspects of my life
I can lower the frequency of psychic strife.
That I can control how I feel is my belief
Otherwise I’d be living unspeakable hell.

Eye Of The Storm

From A Perspective of Peace

In the calm at the center of each person’s soul
In the land of enormous freedoms and the home
Of a broken mixed family fast on the brink
Of the ultimate squabble, one cannot but think
All is caught in a pivotal pointed syndrome
As severe as the dickens. We haven’t been whole.

But compared to what may come, this time is our grace
Period for deciding what has to be done
To repair all the damage and cursed sentiment
For what had been most sacred. The need to prevent
The collapse of democracy for everyone
Is aggravated so by our issues of race.

The vision twenty-twenty is that of the eye
Of the storm in the distance. The time that it takes
‘Til it blows past our consciousness cannot be known.
People exercise free will and act out alone.
Some have taken a big gamble. What are the stakes
When the system of justice is an alibi?

We are crossing a threshold into something new
To our souls and our psyches. The need to worry
Is for those of aggression, contention, and fear.
For the rest of us it remains perfectly clear
That there is no preventing what must come to be.
We have turmoil and subsequent truth to get to.
