A Solution For Discord

The screech of chalk drawn down along a blackboard,
The shriek of tires on too sharp a turn,
Sarcastic words that lead us into discord,
Resistance causing circuitry to burn.

"Oh, help", I say, "these things are all displeasure."
Cacophony of irritants of life;
There must be for each one a better measure.
Can inner peace survive this outer strife?

We're wired this way, responding to sensations;
The plan for all embraces remedy.
In processes, attitudes, and our relations,
Learn the ways that lead to harmony.
