Anxious and bored.
Looking this way
and that way
for some escape
from the ordinary
and mundane.

Monkey mind
constantly chattering
Monkey mind begets
monkey actions
begets monkey decisions
and monkey emotions.

Hoping for external solutions,
and searching for alternatives,
Escape is not an option.
Reality is what we make it.
Whether constantly waving in the wake of
emotions and mind
thoughts and actions
Or still, as the calm that overcomes a pool
in Winter.

The true peace comes from within.
Is known only within the depths
of the soul,
the spirit,
If one can only settle enough
to listen,
to hear,
to feel with the heart,
and to reap the benefits.

Monkey business
