Piece

So crazy what is happening here and now
The world an out of kilter spinning top
The running that preempts the walk some how
I’d started and had never learnt to stop
The aspiration leader of the pack
The rich are so much louder than the poor
I lost my mind but then I claimed it back
Success arrived when I stopped wanting more
No longer need to reach that finish line
Competing only dents the self belief
My piece of quiet grows with space and time
My happiness no longer built on grief
Within my mind I exercise the choice
The shouting cannot drown the inner voice
