I awake under siege by the worst my mind can throw at me –

Gloomy futures,
Haunts from the past,
Feelings of general dread

Deep and all around.
Flying the banner of ‘inescapable’

Resistance is futile, they feed on it

Though I can try to mount a defense
I can also expand beyond them
Not ignore them, that doesn’t work
But Remember there is more to Life than this

If wisdom or insight might fit the bill, it is there
If some comfort or courage would help, the inner helping hand is there
Whatever will remind me of the best, it is there

And though sometimes it seems to take more to get there than other times
It is always there ~

If I’ll just pause ….
and remember to take the time to Remember
