Mantra

Woke up late again
“life is good. Everything’s ok”
Missed the early train
“life is good. Everything’s ok”
Can’t stop this mantra chain, this really helps my brain and if I feel like I’m in pain, just puff that merry jane… Cos life is good and everything’s ok. It’s okay. I’m okay
 
Woke up at 7:30
“life is good. Everything’s ok”
Got time to drink some herb-tea
“life is good. Everything’s ok”
I’m a cosy little peewee, reading under a shaded tree, and I might not have a plan B, but right here is where I should be… Cos life is good and everything’s ok. It’s okay. I’m okay
 
HEY! Focus on the present
“life is good. Everything’s ok”
This day’s another blessing
“life is good. Everything’s ok”
Continue with this lesson, of making your own heaven, find your thoughts become fluorescent, don’t give it another second… Cos life is good and everything’s ok. It’s okay. You're okay

Shutting up those racing thoughts... fears from the past and fears of the future, these thoughts ruin what matters, your present. One thing that can help, amongst other things - find your mantra.

With this quick poem, I just wanted to bring light to the progression and I'm having fun with this way of writing a poem. I'm trying new things. My meaning to the change in you and I is that at first it's just I (like you're convincing yourself) and eventually the mantra becomes you. Hope that makes sense?
