  • Your anger fuels this darkened sky.
    Turbulent currents fed by fiery thoughts and reply.
    The darkness that settles here is a reflection of your own.
    This sky can be lightened by you and you alone.
    This pattern is an ancient one, great clouds formed over time.
    Be free from this storm, unwind its tether from your mind.
    We cannot hold your angry fronts much longer without peace
    before the force of their collision causes spectacular release
    of the exploding sound of your booming voices and fiery crackle of your sharp tongues.
    A karmic load, so heavy in its debt, impossible for this war to be won.
    There will be great havoc, disturbances, darkened energy will grow
    Unless you stop this cycle, change these seeds that, in great number, you sow.
    Give up this fight, this inherited act, of perpetual turmoil.
    Tear these weeds from their roots and replenish your thoughts with fertile soil.
    Plant seeds that sprout a gentle vine and nourish it with soft rain.
    Think thoughts, whisper words that sing of kindness and serenade the pain.
    Set adrift no longer, your anger. Let it drop instead to the floor,
    as it sinks down even deeper, to be incinerated in earth's core.
    Then look again up to the sky, feel the gentle breeze kiss your face
    and know you have restored clear skies and peace upon this place.
