Calm waters

Cool, calm space with bright splashes of colour.
Calm. No anger, no tension.  My being floats. Tranquil.

Words on the page transport me to a new world. Thoughts take hold – a flurry of striking waves. The hard pip of anger grips me, turns light dark. I live desolation, alone and in fear. Black puddles where unknown forces spin into an unrelenting spiral, make a hungry howl worthless.

Wailing against injustice is wasted energy. Railing against cruelty is wasted energy.

Approach with calm for best effect.
Package calm and anger to use when appropriate.
