My mind is uncompromising in it’s busy distraction
it remembers the irrelevant nothings, inane dribble
but forgets crucial points, names and important dates
When I need to respond quickly it’s packed up and gone on holiday
As I try to sleep I suddenly think of that smart retort,
then it gets busy regurgitating every fine detail of my day
persisting so loudly it wont let me sleep ….
What can I do to keep this noisy disturbing companion
quiet in order to think? How do I distract it, train it
or turn it off … or do I submit to it’s merciless chatter
thinking I’m the only one going insane, oh it’s such a pain!
Tangled in knots, I think I forgot how to calm it right down
as it tangos away tapping on my brain my mind is never still!
Meditation is the real solution, taming my mind will be a real thrill
