Losing the Mind

I’m trying, trying very hard,
Still tight it clings,
Won’t let go,
Stays around,
Determined to have
The final word.

Closing the door,
Closing my eyes,
Slipping off
Where no-one knows.

Nothing works.
The mind hangs on,
Goes where I go.

How do I move
Away from, out of
Become unmindful,

How can I reach
Beyond the mind?
Reach that haven,
That mindless meadow
Where no thought sings?
