Beware You'Re Thoughts - Poem by Chris Boyles
There she was sat her mind tired and strained
inside her head thoughts were now ingrained.
Was paranoia always to be there in her days
was it because of her thoughts or just a phase.
Sometimes she looked and things were seen
reminding her where others had before been.
Coincidence or hints that she should beware
maybe everything in life is not honest and fair.
Should she take heed or maybe just ignore
a dilemna she was facing that was for sure.
Thinking caused pain she felt it in her heart
she wished these thoughts she could impart.
Silently she carried on with her daily routine
til answers to the questions she could glean.
Her life to run smoothly she always yearned
now paranoia in her head and heart burned.
To seek the answers to life was her quest
she had tried to always do what was best.
There as she sat upon the rocks by the sea
the sun set as like life it was only temporary.
Words echoed now there inside her mind
would they ever be proven or ever defined.
A crab with his home on his back passed by
in a whisper she heard herself saying 'Why'.
That is the tale of a lady that I do know well
feeling lost and wishing her home was a shell.
With no cares only being there on that beach
not needing to seek truth or another to reach.
