The noise within versus the noise without
They compete: which has the greater clout?
My mind sways from one to the other
Is there a way to find a tether?
As my mind flits, my focus shatters
I cannot let it loose: work matters
To drown one noise, another won’t do
Still my mind I must, without further ado
A goal I must have, to shut out the noise
I need to think about it and give it voice
