Benefits of Meditation

Running nowhere fast

Endless hamster wheels in rat races

Won by no one

Why?

What’s the point?

Silence.

Breathing in, and out.

I’m in this moment

Right here, and now.

Trying to make my world around me

Just as I need it to be.

Distractions.

‘I should’s’ roll around my mind;

Empty beer cans in the bed of a pick up

I’m worn thin

Saltwater taffy, stretched in all directions.

Diminished, pulled to a wisp

By everything I don’t know to not need

Listen.

There’s silence.

Don’t try to fill it

Just feel it

Silence
