Patience & Bravery 

From deep within the dark corridor
You begin to hear the howling
The sound of fear strengthens
Breath quickens with distress.

Heart beat expands to neck and fingertips
Emotions flood in and take over
Anger being the first to surface
rage fills and devours you into darkness.

Current thoughts and events fill the mind
like a cloud cover
But body reacts like upheaval repeats
to drag you back under

Delayed awareness infiltrates mind
After reaction and emotions manifest
Too late to withdraw
All that’s left is to recognize and acknowledge

Apologies, acceptance and wisdom follow exposure
Transcendence unavoidable
The time will come
Patience and bravery will deliver attainment
