thought cannot bring peace

thought cannot bring
the lasting peace
many seek

the nature of thought
is linear
and no matter how hard
you try
to only think
good and peaceful
thoughts
always
at some point
thought will
have to go dark
and dwell
in the shadow
because that is
its nature

thought is like
the sun and the moon
and trying to control
either is
entirely futile

do not rely on thought
for peace
it is changeable
and unpredictable
it may turn on you
as easily as it
turns on others

reflect on the silent
and empty space
from which
sun, moon
and thought
appear
and fall into
that space
forever
