Mind Chatter

Ceaseless mind chatter
Perpetual mind games
Make it stop!
This tireless madness
Tell me, “who” is to blame
For the never-ending onslaught of
Negative thoughts that keep a soul occupied
Rolling the tape on the big screen
In the theater of your uncontrolled mind
Do you ever wonder what’s playing behind the curtain
Of auburn hair or hazel eyes
If you could envision the previews
You might be surprised to find
Every imperfect, living, breathing soul
Hears negative chatter with fervour
Scanning frequencies left and right
Sanity is tucked away in a drawer
Still the mind chatter, debris and the clutter
Interferes with faith’s radar screen
Filling the mind with disorder
On a confused multitude of things
So how do we gain back our “focus”
Align our thoughts with clarity
We must forever look to The Light
Through lenses of Jesus Christ’s purity
Sin creates the delusion
Fradulent darkness surrounds the mind’s eye
Mindful clutter intended to deceive
Its effect is unproductive… futile
Most chatter is negative and misleading
Inaccurate, distorted and untrue
Causing confusion, these misguided perceptions
Are adept at concealing the truth
We must remember, when thoughts seem scattered
Lacking orderly, organized, continuity
We must light up the cluttered darkness
With God’s truth…His truth will set your mind at ease
So do not listen to condemning voices
Speaking the guilt of yesterday’s past
Weary sinner
Lift your head
Live your faith
