Let Your Mind Die

by Nicholas “The Bard” Andrea

Let your mind die into this
let your concerns stay in the belly where they can digest into bliss –
there’s no need to regurgitate old wounds
just hear me, this:

even when your instigator comes and does what she does best
stay present in a lack of knowledge of good and bad
keep your mind open to an unexpectedly benevolent guest;

let your mind die into this
let the wind come and you, kiss
and that thing which is closer to you than any in the heavens
which loveth even through the tormentor, the unexpected blessins’

who art one’s closest ally
one’s very best friend
here from the beginning
here till the end

that one, may just appear
may just, good tidings portend

like eating one’s greens – bitter maybe, yes –
but life-affirming in the end;

so, sit, and know not a thing, my friend
and before that one say, “Amen! Amen!”
and speak your truth until all becomes silence, again.
