Be Mindful

Be mindful not to bliss so much
That our thinking stalls, complacent
Some agitation must be felt
To cause movement, to change things

Be mindful silence does not seep
Beyond the borders of our cushions
Sometimes our voices must be harsh
For truth to topple institutions

Be mindful not to sit so long
That our eyes get used to blindness
Discomfort helps us seek new ways
Beyond the ease, the dark, the silence
