Of All Days

The temper within
Must be tamed or unleashed completely,
Never directed at people,
Never accepted as the way,
Only used to fuel whatever the project,
The purpose, the issue.

The temper within
Cannot be a fossil fuel
Burning dirty, hot, and molten
Harnessing a clean source of purpose,
A renewable energy for growing,
For creating, for being happy.

The temper within
Drives the man wherever he allows
Be in control,
Be full of restraint,
Using discipline to manage instinct,
To manage impulse, to manage you.
