Pandora’s Box

I admire people with emotional composure

I’ve never been able to control my feelings with ease for as as long as I can remember.

They overtake me and most everything I see-affects me.

Strong emotions come with gifts, such as great passion. They also bring other things, like deep, irretrievable sorrow.

And so I work doubly hard to control my emotions.

I work hard to control them

did you know? It doesn’t look it, I know– me dolling smiles all around, grinning like I’ve got no care.

 

 

Emotions are great– particularly the happy ones, but then the pendulum swings.

I get scared when the pendulum swings.

 

Lord, teach me to be still.
