a healing poem by Dr. Angi

When events go differently than we expect,
let us take the time to process the effect.
Sit with it. Digest it. Integrate it.
And with our hearts we get to deflect.
The negativity we need to repel.
And the strong emotions we must dispel.

We have seemed to be have been thrown a curve.
Not to agitate us or get on our nerves.
No. It is an opportunity for growth;
To see things in another way.
To discover our capacity for compassion today.

Let us reach out and unify
With all people, no matter what they seem to deny.
Common ground we need.
In order to plant the seed
of love. Kindness is what we must feed
each other to eliminate the peeved.

To be our best.
Not to detest.
But to rise above.
And be love.

An endnote. A quote from my wonderful father: “Don’t be bitter, be better.”
