Mind Your Mind

 

 

The thoughts we think in our own mind

Be it ill fate or happiness

The things to which we are resigned

 

Spoken words with effort maligned

Breath exhaled for our added stress

The thoughts we think in our own mind

 

In our ears their judgement confined

Hateful wounds not given redress

The things to which we are resigned

 

For wheat is from the chaff refined

And we believe what we confess

The thoughts we think in our own mind

 

It’s how our life will be defined

When eulogy given address

The things to which we are resigned

 

In mill of self-worth they will grind

And fall away as so much less

The thoughts we think in our own mind

The things to which we are resigned
