Feeling out of sorts today,

I traverse in the valley

 Uncomfortable, I presume.

 And after some self-reflection

it is people, places and things

that have gotten me down.  

Secretly, I want to control these things,

so that I don’t have to be bothered by them,

but I know I can’t.

 It’s a waste of time and space.  

So again, I remind myself,

to keep the focus on me

 take back my energy

so that I can live my life,

instead trying to live out the lives of others.

 Again, I take a deep breath, and breathe.  

Inhale, Peace.  

Exhale control.

Hope that works.
