Cognitive Therapy Teaches

Cognitive therapy teaches us
how to train thought patterns
untangle twisted thinking
rearrange life long yarn of
negative compulsion
saving minds form unjust jump
rise above unraveling wort case scenario
downward conclusion spiral pitfall
rewire cynical cognition circuits
snapping cyclical spell of self destruction
to ignore false fortune telling
overblown magnification of the mundane everyday
inflating small incidents expecting Armageddon consequence
mind reading projecting our own inner insecurities
anticipating the worst outward reaction imaginable

showing in the end we ourselves are our harshest
critic and most unjust judge
that to rise above we must learn to
forgive and love
