I stumbled upon this poem that I had penned down some years ago...It's so relevant whenever I read it so I thought I'd share it with others too!
At times you feel so stifled,
Like you’re put into a cage,
You want to break this wave of strain,
You’re seething with venomous rage…
Situations, they will be trying,
It’s up to you how you respond,
Would you perceive still water
As a distressing flood or would
It be a soothing pond?
No one will hurt you,
If you don’t want them to,
The power to choose lies with you,
You can paint on life’s canvas,
A lighter shade,
Or smudge it with a darker hue….
