Constant

Would like  love to turn my mind off
please point me in the direction of a switch. Any switch will do

like a leaf in the stillness of the wind  complete stillness
yet the leaf still moves
just a little
just enough

and I've read Zen
and all those damn peace of mind books
though in the end
with the final conclusion
I always seem to lose my mind

They  the DOCTORS  the fixer uppers
have drained me with every medication
they can find
yet  they haven't drained this mind
can't they find something that will
drain a little  just a bit  of this mind?

So hear hear
doctors
therapists
peace of mind books

I'm waiting
wanting
for you to take a little of this mind.
