BUTTONS

Buttons come in
All shapes and sizes:
Some are funny;
Others are hot;
Some are okay;
Many are not.

 

Unintended
Reactions catch us:

Some are  instant;
Some filled with tears;
Found in anger;
Coming from fears.

 

Touched off by things
That bring ghosts to life:

Painful memories;
Feeling afraid;
Haunting shadows;
Vows we have made.

 

Time to let go
And heal for a while:
New ways to think;
Truth that is real;
Finding the path
To what we feel.

 

One step each day
Toward wholeness of soul:
Learn to forgive;
Try a fresh view;
Choose healthy ways;
Know the real “you.”

 

Now those buttons
Won’t be so much work:
Some still get pushed;
Some disappear;
Others weaken;
Each is more clear.

 

Settle yourself
As you learn and grow:
Fewer buttons
Hurt when pressed;
More peace and joy
Will keep you best.
