Why mindfulness?

Watch your every thought –
errant ones: Redirect them
Watch your body tightness –
obstructed: Release it
Watch your ego self –
untethered: Re-tether it

For thoughts lead to emotions
which lead to body and ego –
Stay alert! Handle gently at the source
and do not allow undesired thoughts to grow
for they will interweave: That is their nature
