HOW YOU DEAL


How you deal with yourself is the key
you have to be loving
to yourself in this planetary dream.
Spells of bad words shouted out to you
when you were a child making you blue.
Now cold to the feelings not expressed
you have them buried in you close to your vest.
You have to now make sense of this
You have to be able to express-
Express your emotions that were buried inside
they never go away they just hide.
Hide like a monster under your bed
they come back to haunt you inside your head.
Then making you do unconscious stuff you do dread.
We need more ways to express emotions to get it all out
through feeling the pain and even if you have to shout.
The emotion is now moving outside of you
making you whole again and more true.
So just think of all the inmates who did drugs
they were first hiding the pain before they became thugs.

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
