Mental Cleansing

Write your pain and watch it die
See the words burn right through the page
Savour this moment and never forget
There is always hope outside the cage

Sing your pain and feel it struggle to survive
Letting it all go will give you a lift
Heal the wounds with the sounds of joy
Always embrace this special gift

Draw your pain and expose the lie
Examine it closely in your paper prison
The scary monster has lost its power
A chance for removal has now arisen

Share your pain within a protective group
They’ll wipe away your every tear
Release the anguish that’s been locked inside
And throw away your irrational fear

Soothe your pain with a gentle thought
It can be short or of considerable length
Release the guilt that holds you back
And revitalize your inner strength

Reveal your pain any way you choose
No more punishment for being in this state
All you need is a good mental cleansing
There’s no more time to hesitate
