I hate these thoughts I'm having They're just not me. Gonna place them on some leaves And let them flow down the stream. I'm not the author of all of my thoughts I'm more like an observer as they float by me. I'm not responsible for everything that pops Into my head, only if those things become my identity. I'm not these thoughts And they're not me. I'm just watching patiently As they travel down the stream Inside my mind - that ever moving current That brings me joy and pain.
Inspired by a meditation technique shared with me by a friend:
