Set Your Mind

It is so difficult to change old mind sets
The dependency on others for your happiness
If my best friend has dropped me 
And moved on, how do I keep equanimity 
If my mother didn’t will me my fair share
Then I despair
If my sister gets more dimes than I do
I feel blue
If my son doesn’t dote on me no more
I have someone to blame for
If my spouse is vagrant, not steady
I am flagrant n frenzied
If my daughter is busy nine to nine
Why do I feel confined?
If my neighbour doesn’t smile at me
I harbour animosity
If some gossip monger in the park
Slights me with a snide remark
On my personal life
I lash back, stifled 
If service vendors cheat 
If my boss doesn’t treat 
Me with courtesy, is rude
He shatters my mood
I forget, I am a blissful entity
I am the power, purity 
These are my soul qualities 
If I change my mindset
I can win my own bets.
