Mastering the mind

Alaska July 2021

Learning to master the mind

Who can do it

It is restless



It twists and turns like the wind

Churns and tosses

Like a mountain stream

Who can control it

It is our closest friend

And our worst enemy

It has brought me

To the highest high

And knocked me to

The lowest low

Still I try to master it

I will continue my entire life

Exploring it

Wrestling with it

And enjoying those moments

We dance and laugh together

Before the battle begins again

Me and my free will

Trying to calm the tumultuous

Pouring out of thoughts

From my wild and reckless

Ever brilliant mind

E.A. Fussell
