At Home – Turn Off and Go Inside

Here we are, all at home
There are moments of hope
And periods of despair
Fear and anxiety punctuate the day
Frustration and anger rise
Waves of confusion
Some are triggered into behavior
They mostly avoid
And often regret
Yet still it persists, day upon day,
Those who dare plug into the news
May instantly wish they hadn’t
For it seems as though it’s
The blind leading the blind

All I can say is
Don’t be strong, be true
When you feel angry, be it
But don’t take it out on anyone
If waves of despair crash upon you
Drown for a while
It’s no ones fault that you will ever find
Feel it all fully, and let it wash through you
Hold on to nothing
It could be the cleansing you need
Don’t try and be happy
Just be how you are
This is your chance to go deeper
And if you feel nothing
Or do nothing
That’s ok as well
Turn off the news and go inside
This could be when you find out
Who you really are, what makes you tick
What you really believe, what you fear
And what you truly want.

Here we are at home.
