Little mind, please stay
Please don’t always run away.
What is it that alarms you?
Or is it laziness that casts you adrift
As if there was some place to go?
You act like a teenager, itching to leave home
But there’s only here, don’t you know that by now?
Something tells me that if only you would stop this restlessness,
Settle down and be content,
Unknown wonder would crack open,
A barrier would fall
That which you restlessly seek outside
Would in all glory be right here.
Unreasonable little mind, you stubborn child
Is there no way I can spare you the pain of your own making?
