drama
happens.

some days are made
for a bit of 
emotional drama.

i suppose it 
is one of the 
conditions of being 
human. 

drama:

we look at our schedule
and see we can not 
possibly complete everything
that is before us
so we gnash our teeth and 
wring our hands.
 
drama: 
 
we do what it takes to 
get where we need to get...
we think and push 
ourselves
and honestly reflect
and yet some days 
it feels
we've done all this for nothing
so we 
wail and 
yell and whimper.
 
drama: 
 
sometimes our 
hearts and minds
our bodies just need to 
release all the 
toxins that come with 
pressure and worry and angst
and exhaustion. 
 
drama happens. 
 
it's been my experience that 
when drama occurs
within the
balance of 
maturity
and peace
and patience
the ones we love and the 
ones who love us
are able to 
withstand the drama 
that sometimes
comes spilling out. 
 
however...
full time 
drama 
chokes 
and kills.
 
so with perspective
and balance
with prayer 
and patience 
a little drama 
helps 
i suppose
to cleanse the palate
to open up the silence
to pave the way for something
different. 
 
today is better.
yesterday's
drama 
has been
comforted 
and laid to rest.
