You hear the words,
but do you listen?
You see the signs,
but do you read?
You know the way,
but still you wander.
You get your wants,
forget your needs.
Then in the early morning lightness
when you wake still half asleep,
unwanted thoughts bombard your mind,
you try to decide which ones to keep.
You hear the stillness
in the silence.
You taste the freshness
in the air.
You close your eyes,
go back to dream time,
you know the answer’s
there somewhere.
Then when the darkness drowns you,
when there is no end in sight,
finally you can surrender,
realize there was no fight.
