    Upwelling Emotions

    Caught in the moment was I
    Forgetting to pause
    To take deep breaths
    And so I let the emotions overcome me
    I observed the frustration, the annoyance of having things
    Not go my way.
    “Center, and calm yourself!” I wanted to shout
    To push aside the negativity away
    But stubborn were these feelings
    So empathy I sought to invite:
    “Take my hand, show me the light”
    In desperation, I sighed
    I don’t want to fight this fight.
    So empathy, take my hand,
    Show me the light;
    Because in my heart I know,
    this is not right.
