The mind is like a teenager

1. February 2019

 

The mind is like a teenager, 
living in my house. 
Always restless and grumpy. 
Always looking for his phone.  
Occupied with his friends’ opinions 
and how to be seen. 
Creating a mess around him 
and complaining about it afterwards.
 
The belly is so wise and quiet. 
Not saying anything,
not being disturbed. 
Just sitting
waiting patiently for the rascal to grow up.
 
Sometimes he is out running with his friends.
Then the belly enjoys so much
the silence 
and spaciousness spreading in the house.
 
Oh belly, oh belly! 
 
I want to curl up in your soft lap 
and rest forever 
in your quiet embrace.
