Stillness Within Madness

Patience is key
You see and I see
The mind comes in a hurry
That’s when I need to stay sturdy

Just sitting seems fitting
Being and waiting
This all looks like an appropriate setting
If only I wasn’t so damn concerned about the ratings!

Safely said, I’m on this ride
What am I doing with my life?
Stillness buddy, therein lies the might
I will gladly take a bite

Besting myself again and again
Taking my time in stride
Occasional anxiety
That’s when I need my heart the most

Otherwise I would become a ghost
Of the man I know and hold close
Lord, give me the strength, utmost
So I can finally break free of this boast
