Ten words or fewer,
For unengaged brains.
Attributed to ancient mystics,
And TED talk orations.
Designed to make you pause,
Admire the sharers’ virtue,
Signaling the fathoms of their minds,
As deep as the children’s end of the pool,
No. As a puddle, a droplet, a globule,
But nothing approaching a tear.
Churned out daily,
Curdling the intellectual pantheon,
These 10 words will never be uttered:
My life changed course,
All thanks to a mindfulness meme.
