Metacognition (A Poem)

“Your thoughts are the architects of your destiny.”

-David O. McKay

Think about your thoughts
What do they say to you?
(The messages they’re sending
May not always be true)

Which ones are simply fleeting
What are your fixations?
Where’s your mental energy?
Your (too high?) expectations

Related are emotions
Priorities revealed
Your life is heav’ly influenced
By what you choose to feel

You’ve only got so much
Of your care to go around (it’s a)
Good idea to jettison those
Thoughts that bring you down

Don’t underestimate the power
and importance of self-talk
If needed, make adjustments
Some changes to your thoughts!

“Got me analyzing everything that
ain’t worth thinking ’bout.”

-Kacey Musgraves
