Peace of Mind

By Jimmy Warden

We can’t quiet the mind
by suffocating it
or stifling it.
That will only make it
scream louder.

Instead, we need to accept the fact
it’s always on
and there’s no turning it off;
not even when we sleep.
Hence why we dream in such vividness,
feeling like it’s reality.

There’s no conquering the mind;
we co-play or co-star
knowing we need it
and it needs us.

When there’s harmony in this dynamic,
there is more peace of mind.
