That Magic Potion
by Robert Webster, YogiCycle


Changing circumstances, changing emotions.
Your brain creates that Magic Potion:
It gives life to feelings of
Despair; sadness; rage.


And back again.
Always, back again…

Sinking below the surface
For who knows how long?
Hours, days, weeks, months go by
Your mind plays the same, tired song.


The emotional weight is real.
It presses on your head,
You feel your eyelids lower,
Your shoulder droops
Right down to your heel.


You lose weight.
You gain weight.
You seesaw up and down.
You see your reflection
In the mirror
Throwing back your frown.

You tell yourself
Snap out of it!
It’s not that bad!
But your thoughts
Cause you to spiral down
And…poetrysmall

Your brain creates that Magic Potion:
It gives life to feelings of
Despair; sadness; rage.

And back again.
Always, back again…

So what to do?
How to break the chain?
Start by seeking help
From outside your domain.


An unbiased eye
Can help you try
And start your brain,
To create a Magic Potion:
That gives life to feelings of
Safety; warmth; acceptance; even joy.

And back again.
Always, back again…
