Oh mind, you fly away all day and night
Since I was young and quiet, I don’t know why.
A noise, a light, a thought, a glance enough
To send you off on random paths to love,
To laugh, to weep, in sleep, awake. Recall
The child, foretell the man, make sense of all.
I train you on my breath to empty out
The calls so loud, but still they jump and shout
About, demand attention from you, mind.
We’ll tire and land one day I think you’ll find.
