Dodging the Bullets of Anger and Fear

Whenever I see my rage arise afar,
I show it out my mind’s door ajar.
I am for sure aware a lot lately,
I think, reflect, and meditate; you see.

I know what triggers my anger so well,
I elude it quickly, prevent its spell.
Whenever I unstrain, it makes me calm,
A healthy life and workouts are a balm.

From anger, I will turn my gaze to fear,
It far too often throws my mind off gear.
For worry, I query how much is real,
It helps dispel the imagined ordeal.

The straighter the path of life I do tread,
The easier it is to nix most dread.
It’s thus I make myself more fit each day,
To keep pesky anger and fear at bay.
