Negative emotions,

those often unpredictable

elements within us which battle for control

and are found lying in wait for

a weak moment

when they can attempt to

deny the truth

which also lives within us.

Their loud angry voices attempt

to drown out the sweet music

that coexists deep in the soul.

Its joy and hope and peace

do not need to shout.

Truth comes softly

like a kiss.

My wounded soul
