Control that darkly wandering mind


Fear produces potent
Amygdalic release
a toxic rush of
cortisol dopamine and norepinephrine
cascade through your axons

very core of the brain
Lizard like and ancient
comes alive

you cannot by nature
ignore it's power

Nature designed it that way

but you me we
are human
and we have
if we so choose
the power to put this potion in its place

our brains can say nay
we will not allow
these thoughts to linger
to be able to stop thoughts

you must have control of your mind.

when you find darkness
Unnecessary and unwelcome
do not engage
acknowledge and release
redirect your thoughts to something productive

persistent thought
can be chased away with logic
and dismissed
but you must believe in yourself
and the power you possess
to change.

Human brains
use em
or get used by em.
