A poem on bad habits we can’t let go of and the comfort of the spiraling brain…

Program note:
Ask the person next to you about their feelings and be open for any answer. Learn how to identify what you are feeling and accept sometimes it might be jealousy, or shame… Don’t hide away, it’s part of human nature… And perhaps that will make letting go of bad habits a lot easier…
