Tapering Off

As I try to tame my mental afflictions
I find my destructive emotions taper off
Seems by focusing on the constructive
the harmful gradually fades away

Try it if you might ..  appreciation
gives energy to goodness
and distracts us from dissatisfaction
so that the unhelpful fades or tapers off

Satisfaction and contentment arise more readily
when we hold others in our heart more steadily
Be aware that what we give priority will grow
allowing what causes grief to shrink,

for we are what we sew

  1. And I thought taper was a person who used a lot of adhesive backed paper strips. “Be aware that what we give priority will grow, allowing what causes grief to shrink” – which is why choosing the right priority is imperative. Excellent response to the prompt, Kate!
