When they're tired people watch tv

When they’re tired people watch tv
I watch my mind and let it slow down, stop

When they’re tired people take a bath
I take a bath in my flow of thoughts
And let the choppy waves fall still

When they’re tired people get grumpy
I watch my grumpy mind
And let the grumpiness dissolve

People try to squeeze everything into their lives
And in doing so wear themselves out
I stop awhile when I feel frenzy arising
And I repair the damage done

People try to achieve, win, leave a legacy
And in doing so throw away the moments of their lives
I keep stopping, seek nothing, want anonymity
And this fills my life with meaning and fulfilment
