This morning, driving into work
Old Resentments popped up
Past Wrongs showed up too
Then there was Burning Jealousy
followed by Self-Righteous Anger.
It was a full car.
Why all this?
Can I see them off? Get them out
What do I need to do?
Then there is Misunderstood--My Nemesis!
If only they knew!
If I could just get them to do what I want.
What would I do if I were free of these old grudges, persistent fears, same old insecurities?
Free of this company
Whom would I invite? (would they come?)
Lord, help me make room for some new companions.
