Where did all the noise come from? It’s all I can hear.
The less others are near me, it gets louder still.
Why can’t it shut the hell up… the voice within me?
Do I think way too much of this thing that I be?
If that is but the issue, how do I fulfill
What the ego demands of me? This is my fear.
There’s a need to become silent… sometimes, at least.
But is there a good process that I can apply?
I am sure there are plenty… ancient, tried and true.
To think not much of myself is so hard to do.
Any method that works well I’m willing to try.
If I am just a piece of life, fear is released.
It is not psychological, though of the mind.
Existential in essence, the way leads to peace
In the mind, heart and body. Silence can replace
All the recycled thoughts with contentment and grace.
If I place value on my thoughts, there’s no release
Of the internal chatter. To it I’m resigned.
