Quiet mind

Quiet mind

Write what comes
Don’t argue with the words

It’s OK to not like what they say
Write them anyway

It’s OK to not have the right words

Write down the wrong words
The right ones can be found later

Wait or pause whenever it feels
Like the words aren’t coming… yet
Or the meaning isn’t right… yet
And the right way isn’t present… yet

Eye

Eye check my ego
Eye check my arrogance

Eye look in the mirror
Remind myself to look away

Eye reflect on my deeds, on my actions
Measure them against my ideals, my beliefs

I is a thing
Which cannot see
Beyond the shell
Which houses I
