Look out, not in, and find salvation there

WatercolorPainting.com - Reference - Pigments

Now therapy usurps the place of faith

And into our own minds we’re told to delve

Whatever we now think , we have to say it

In that way Freud thinks we find a  truer self.

The therapist is like a looking glass

They  just reflect whatever we have bared.

But if we look to long, it comes to pass

That Satan and his devils are prepared.

They may enchant us  into false self-love

To value pride  and then deceive  our souls;

Yet  to  humble people comes the  holy dove

And self-forgetting is what makes us whole.

Confused, alarmed and  reckless with  despair

Look out, not in,  and find salvation  there
