Learning to stabilize emotions

The Piscean Tempest

by cflorian8

An individual body holds within
Love and Logic divisive twins
Never agreeing a battle begins
A tornado of emotion starts to spin
Love for myself or others boundaries are thin
Lines are blurred the hero descends
Saving family from themselves happiness lives
Everybody wins
love and logic
A toxic equilibrium
Appease family and peace never ends
Co dependency becomes expectation
Love becomes toxic and logic screams sin

Confusion and resentment build within
Love and anger the divisive twins
Appeasing family and peace lives
Love poisons and anger spins
A journey of self-discovery
Separation must begin
Away from family
I must find personal equilibrium

Time moves forward peace descends
With therapy the healing begins
Anger quiets
Love and logic a healthy relationship spin
Meeting my expectations equals happy twins
Through therapy boundaries build
My heart's equilibrium

Time moves forward hope held within
Family comes together again
Love and anxiety divisive twins
Old habits die hard
Worry spins
Hold boundaries firm
Self-preservation must win
How often will superman fly in
To save his family from their mistakes again?

Time moves forward frustration within
Help unappreciated toxic cycle begins
Love and anger divisive twins
Boundaries are up
Sadness spins
Self-preservation must win
Family probation
October ends
Higher priority
Family extends
My heart respected
Or renewed probation
November ends
Self-preservation must win
I will maintain healthy
