Do not let draining emotions into
The doors of your mind and soul.
The anger, jealousy, resentment
All those that make you feel bad
Sapping away the strength of life.
No matter how justified you are
No matter how wrong they are
They corrode at the core of the being.
Suppressing them will do no good
Bursting like a volcano one day.
Venting too does not help
The scars left in its wake
By words said and unsaid.
Guard them at the gates of mind, body and soul
If they do sneak in
Banish them, exterminate them.
Break away from the cycle of
Feeling good, feeling bad.
Feel good, feeling good.
