Outer Cold Inner Warmth

Orange Leaves
With roaring emotions fresh troubles may start.
Soaring of insight warms a cold heart.
Decide how this moment’s most fittingly spent.
The iron of anger with kindness is bent.
Doors opened outward bring shivers and cold,
But sunlight, bright sunlight, though cloudy stays bold.

    So True it is Compassionate Empathy derived from Understanding Cognitive Empathy that may Diffuse
    Affective Raw Emotions in the Heat of the Moment.. reminds me of the Decades spent working at a
    Military Bowling Center and insuring Chaos didn’t break-out ‘tween Drunken Sailor Bowlers..
    continues to help me with my Patience and understanding
    of the Differences encountered daily with the
    Human Condition
    University of
    the Human
    Condition truly
    a Military Bowling
    Center is a Microcosm of a Human Society
    it was truly an invaluable experience of Being Human
    Such a Human Job it was.. bringing a Life Long Hobby as well Studying Humans..:)
