The Price

  Taming doubts.
  Taming fears.
  Taming the desires
                            of a rebellious soul.
  Taming dreams.
  Of all the untenable things in the world, I have to tame the untamable.
  This is the heavy price of sanity, it seems.
              The heavy price I have to pay

                                       to end the continuing unraveling of my soul.
