Controlled Emotions

Photo By: Stiefi @ PhotoXpress
Initially I wanted to lose my temper, get loud, and get bold
But then I realized the situation was not one that I could control
What had been done had already happened to me
There was no way to undo it or control it, you see
But what I could control was the way I decided to react
So I chose to keep my emotions and my feelings intact
Deciding to take the higher road meant being more mature
And I recognized that there was something to being more demure
I chose to look at the situation in a more retrospective light
In the past I would’ve used more energy just to start up a fight
Today I could use that energy in a more positive way
And that situation that happened didn’t have to ruin my day
So I now choose to look at situations as a blessing in disguise
And I try to figure out the lesson from which I could arise
Instead of raging out of control and expelling negative energy
To allow the situation and my reaction to create positive synergy
