[Poem] Observe

Look closely..

Your eyes are open
when your eyes are closed,
when you unsee what you’ve seen
and un-know what you’ve known.

Listen up..

Your senses talk sense
when they focus on the inside,
when they don’t get overwhelmed
by the goings-on outside.

Bear in mind..

Your mind is mindful
when it’s focused on the now;
when regret and anticipation
it decides to disallow.

Believe you me..

Your life will get spent
observing mundane blur;
If only you took out the time
to observe the observer.

Do observe the observer.
