Safe?

1237590_505111212931942_1868306252_n

Everything is lined up just so
yet I do not feel safe
locks on the doors
bars on windows
yet I do not feel safe.

I cannot control the world
so will I always
feel unsafe
or is it possible
to change one’s
feelings and the
way one views the world?

Finally I am getting
glimpses of how my
willingness to let my
friends’ comments affect
me creates the drama.

How much can we control
our feelings and our
view of what is
outside of us?
How much people-pleasing,
fear, need for drama
do we want to keep?
How much do we want to
be freed from the slavery
of our history?

    Would “comment affect me created the drama” be more clear? That sentence feels a little confusing to me… but maybe that is the intention. As always — your words inspire.

      you are right, it should read
      “Finally I am getting
      glimpses of how my
      willingness to let my
      friends’ comments affect
      me, creates the drama”

      thanks! hugs, pat.
