Scattering Thoughts

Scattering thoughts 

Can’t find the right words 

I sit quietly by my window and listen to the birds

Close my eyes as I say a prayer to the Lords

My cup is full of herbs

Scattering thoughts 

My words are in knots

Can’t get the messages across

My mind is full of stained spots

Scattering thoughts 

I sit in lotus

My mind in hypnosis

I sit until I find a motive

I am focused 

The pain will never go unnoticed
