Our mental chatter speeds non-stop
with constant busyness we inflate
most things out of proportion
exaggerating and twisting the facts

Easier to fabricate our own fantasies
an ingrained habit used to avoid
accepting reality that conflicts
with our distorted expectations

It stirs our emotions causing pain
yet we act insane allowing it full reign
until eventually we self destruct as it erupts
creating harm to those around

So why do we give this savage such power
why not try to gain more mind control
by stopping the destructive mental activity
slow it down by finding your inner calm
