Accepting the Squirrel. By CpSingleton © 2015
Gathering up the past fails,
Like a squirrel hoarding nuts.
That is how his brain constantly
Tries to undermine the positives.
He slaps its greedy hands
Each time it reaches for another, but
It doesn’t need breath or
Sustenance to fuel itself.
Not like he.
So he closes his eyes, breathes
In the good and out the crap,
Cracks his mental knuckles and
Prepares to fight away the images.
Some say that he will never win,
Until he relaxes unconditionally.
But you try telling the fidgeting
Squirrel of his mind that!
It won’t listen and he knows it.
He then hits upon an idea.
He will treat the squirrel like a brother!
Acceptance will lead his hands.
Let the experiment proceed!
