Anchors Severed: Letting Go

“And sink their bones to Davey Jones, hooray!” John Hagen, Anchors Aweigh

That counting down thing,
Only five seconds in totality,
Sure does a number on the reptilian brain.

Who knew a commitment to calm
Would lay waste to the hardship
Wallowing deep down inside.

A simple trick really,
One full of distraction,
So necessary to letting things go.

Let the stress arrive,
I’ll give it two steps or five seconds
Whichever is faster.
