Grateful state

End the day in a grateful state
see what shouldn't be taken for granted
then awake in just the same way..
Notice where the negativity begins
and how much time you spend fighting
Know when enough is enough,
too much thinking can leave you
stuck in disgust
distrusting of any chances of change,
lost and encaged
estranged at everything..
but if you quiet this internal noise
so overwhelmingly distracting,
you can watch it all
vanish and fade so fast,
the worries and pain you see won't last to then behold the vast space
of silence and awareness
 in their purest forms..

Just take a second to slow on down
let your mind
just not make a sound,
it's in your hands now..
The power to create that peace
that you feel won't so easily release..

Feeling time slip away
but noticing it's all one moment anyways
so let it all be embraced,
flow along because
resistance will only lead
 to more distress
and mental messiness..
still the choice is yours
to force that voice of vibrant hopefulness
in against the anguished thoughts
and habits..
the battle never really seems
 to come to an end,
fluctuations so frequently draining
I demand myself to stay standing
and moving and creating
much as I can
not to escape but to release
the tension building in my being..
To get my mind out of this hole
of haziness and hopeless estrangement..
