Our minds are unruly things.
We want to believe
Their job is to help us.
They distract us
From truly experiencing each day.
Living happens outside the mind.
It consists of a myriad of sensations
To which it’s easy to turn away.
When we do,
We become disconnected from ourselves.
Trapped in a fictionalized world
We accept as truth.
As soon as that happens,
What’s most precious becomes lost.
We become slaves to our thoughts.
