Soften

When the fiery mind reacts
With great indignation
Soften
When righteousness rises up
Ready for attack
Soften
When the trigger comes
And the threat is felt
Deep inside
And emotions run wild
Tearing at the throat
Soften
When all seems lost
When victory is assured
When you feel right
Or wrong
Good or bad
Soften
Soften at the very core
Soften all parts
From the tight breathing
To the rigid mind
Soften
And keep softening
Until clarity
Awareness and discernment
Become your abiding state.
