I know – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“It is a choice. no matter how frustrating or boring or constraining or painful or oppressive our experience, we can always choose how we respond.” Edith Egar

I know

I'm still confused,
all over the place
on days when emotions swirl,
chop and change,
what if,
if only I'd,
but that can never be,
and knowing that
doesn't end the confusion
and sometimes,
this is, 
so sublime,
as feelings can be.
I may choose to stay with it,
or distract myself,
whatever I do
I know it will soon return,
the trigger remains indelible,
and so I play
whichever way
I choose.
