Divine Calm

Temperance

Thought Constructs
are mazes of intricate illusion
forged from mental mirrors
reflecting crystallized pain

Our entire existence
does not have to be
one throbbing ode 
to perceived failures

So let the cage open without warning,
evaporating tension along the spine
that blocks freedom

Become your own Liberator
until intellectual winds
ruffle no feathers on your shoulders
and the emotional sea
is calm beneath your feet.
