There are two buckets inside me, deep inside, but
I thought there was only one.
I thought there was one bucket which
I could fill with goodness by intending to,
With the help of my higher power, Jeff, The Holy Spirit.
But Jeff had another lesson to share.
It turns out that if you write with your heart,
and your feelings, and your emotions,
You may surface hostile feelings meant to be kept undercover,
from yourself and others.
This is the other bucket. This is the bucket you fill with slop,
The slop you have put there; anger, hostility, dark thoughts and worse
And if YOU don’t find away to empty it, it will empty itself,
All over you and those you love. Even if you don’t want it to.
I wonder what else is down there?
