Be Still

Be still racing thoughts, wild mind

Going over the past scenario won’t change the results

Banging your head and hurling hurtful words won’t change how you feel

Instead, be still and take it in

What’s happened, has happened; all gone

What will happen, can change; you can try

So be still racing thoughts, wild mind

Take in the good, let go of the crazy stuff

Take a breath, let it out

Count your blessings, calm down

It’s hardly ever as bad as it seems, and if it is, it’s already happened

Be still because you can’t control people’s opinions and their thoughts of you

So be still racing thoughts, wild mind

Today is gone; tomorrow might be better. There’s that possibility

Shake it off, lift yourself up

You could be standing on the edge of the Sahara; a few more steps, then life

Don’t stop, look ahead, keep moving

Possibilities abound which your mind can’t comprehend

So be still racing thoughts, wild mind
