A Serious Thought

A serious thought,

Popped into my head.

It seems there was trouble,

With a word that I said.


I cannot remember,

The word that I used.

But my brain is insisting,

That my ego is bruised.


My feelings chimed in,

They felt it was wrong.

The word that I used,

Belonged in a song.


Confusion’s set in,

We’re all in a flux.

The bits that are me,

Think everything sucks!


I need calm in this place,

That I call my head.

Relax and shut up,

I know what I said!


I lied to them all,

I needed some peace.

It is sleep I require,

As the voices decrease.


Have you ever surmised,

About the noise in your head?

They’re loud all our lives,

Until we are dead.


I welcome the gang,

When we all work as one.

But then there are days,

When I am seriously done!

    Your cute fish look like they don’t have a care in the world! Our thoughts, ideas, questions can be overwhelming sometimes. And yes, it sucks. But on the bright side, we know we’re not dead yet!🤗

    I’d rather some of my “noise” stays in my head instead of coming out of my mouth as with some people who are just loud and obnoxious!

    The context in the cortex can become a cacophony and at those times listening is a skill that needs be set aside. Diluted by a cup of tea and a double dose of serenity for good measure.
