My mind is blank.
Yes blank.
I think I thought an important thought but that was yesterday.

I got so distraught that I forgot my thought,
Later I thought
my thought might have been for naught and I just dismissed it away.
But then my mind was fraught
with the fear that that thought might not have been for naught
and I was left with only dismay.

You see my mind hadn't had time
to think a thought, for good or for naught, in so many a day.

But then I had a very good thought
and now I have taught
my brain a trick for remembering things anyway.

Writing down thoughts
aught to keep your thoughts
safer than thinking your thoughts
and letting them slip away.

So that at the end of the day
my mind may be blank
but my page isn't
and my thoughts are all okay.
Story of my life
