Stress Release

When stress enters

Like an angry ape

The cortisol comes like

A sordid snake

Which in turn adds pounds

Upon pounds to my waist.

Like dominoes this puts

The old thumper in woe

And the heart sinks 

With despair clouding the air

Not only for image grim

But also for air sucking in.

And my solution is . . . 

Aerobics scat, scoot, scram

Let  yoga come in like a lamb

All soft on the outside

Yet vibrant and strong

And my body will come along.

Now meditate and concentrate

And think of goodness, compensate

The ugly worry and sordid strain

With loving thoughts of health to gain.

This is the path, I choose to center

And leave behind the angry dissenter.
