- Hold That Thought: : Humour, Inspiration - Poem by Alessandra Liverani

Hold that thought, no not that one
That one will get you undone
The one before which flitted past so fleeting
That's the one to which you should be heeding

Don't discard it and put it in a pile of junk
That's the thought which is the thought that should be thunk
The one you're latching onto is broken and of no use
It'll only give you trouble, heartache and abuse

Reach out and grab the one that you carelessly let go
That's the thought which really does know
The complete truth of the matter, unambiguous and clear
Grab that thought and let it steer

(Sydney, Australia - 2006)
