The Pendulum Mind
Are you swinging back and forth
Into thoughts of past happenings
And of the future, yet to happen
Are you continuously sifting.
In a state of imbalance
Switching between thoughts
Do you feel out of focus
With your reality in this now.
Then perhaps you need to rethink
And realign yourself
To be present in this moment
And not lose the now.
Yes the mind shifts without notice
For it is designed to do so
In survival mode to comb and seek
As it searches for possibilities missed.
It creates associations to bridge over the brink
Time to adjust the swinging pendulum of mind,
To calibrate it to move with time
Than against or before time.
For it needs to be aligned
To tune into the current track at play
To be there in mindfulness
Of this very moment at hand.
