A safety-valve

Quite a piece of work to deal with
like a challenge in a game;
outraged by certain reactions
reveal the heart of being home,
true, human and vulnerable.

  Perhaps it’s also a way to release
  one’s anger in an open space,
  walking briskly or without any thought
  just a mere response – owning it
  with creeping silence deep within.

Outdoor sports can help in any way,
a good safety valve to keep going;
with serenity and determination
that conquers evil in human reaction.

  It’s coming to the fore – openness!
  as another virtue to convey;
  to live a life with so many wounds
  will abound God’s grace to heal them all.
