So many thoughts and so little time………..
Ever-changing thoughts fill our heads throughout the day
From subconscious to conscious they battle on their way
What is it that pushes one thought and not the other to the fore?
They spring to mind so vividly, then suddenly are no more
In times of great emotion, whether happy or depressing
Certain thoughts become more powerful, one’s we’re incapable of repressing
No matter what you’re doing or where you are, suddenly they’re upon you
The external proof – a smile or a frown or a face changing hue
They materialise from nowhere and in all shapes and sizes
Provoking different depths of feeling in varying intensity, using never-ending disguises
All powerful to disrupt logical thought, prevent focus and break concentration
How can a thought dictate our mood, inducing alternate states of despair and elation?
Categorising these creatures is a psycho-analysts delight
Abstract becomes fact – what events and which people have triggered your plight?
Perhaps it’s better to accept that we cannot control our fate
We can never stop the wanderings of the mind, no matter what the outcome or resulting state
