Citizens of our Minds

Beyond towns, cities and nations,
We are all citizens of our minds.
Here we live, imagine, speculate & interpret,
Words, gestures, actions and reactions.

We visit our mind’s rooms often,
For the what’s, why’s, when’s and how’s of our lives.
Positive thoughts are fleeting, but negative ones flow easier.
Do you wonder why?

An unkind word can hurt for long,
An unthinking action can sting strong.
Wounds by loved ones are the worst,
Unreciprocated love troubles most.

No easy solution or remedy of sorts,
Thoughts are an uncontrollable lot.
How can I train my mind?
Not to be troubled with thoughts unkind.

Some say meditate,
Others say act.
Still others suggest ignore.
Do not speculate and store.

All noble suggestions,
Key is to turn into actions.
Uncontrollable mind is the worst master,
Giving to its ways, can lead to disaster.

Above all and beyond,
A controllable mind sound,
Can lead us to higher ground.
When some thoughts stop to pound.

Not easy, but a worthy goal,
For thoughts to not trouble our soul.
Staying for a bit, but not too long.
Keeping us in charge and strong.

A hold on one’s thoughts, is the biggest victory.
Can change bodily chemistry and course of history.
