Rage and Writers block

I hate that I let certain people and situations work me up so bad that I go through long bouts of writers block.

I know I'm fully capable of taking care of situations but I am also aware that I can be a very violent person when I'm taken out of my zen. I try very hard to keep calm and remind myself I have a family to take care of but I feel like "The Hulk" at times unable to Control myself after a certain point.

I thank the creator for my wife, my peace. The only means of calming me down. Her touch reminds me that these demons are not mine alone to fight. Her kiss shows me that she will always be there to steady my storms. Her words convince me that I am not the man the world tries hard to make me. Even if for an hour or two, my frustrations and anger subsides and I'm able to rest.My mind and nerves still too much a mess to put pen to paper however.

Maybe tomorrow I'll try to get something on the Brayn Blog. There are lots of issues that I want to address. Till then , keep your mind open and your perceptions wide. ~B~
