panicked on the way down

there is a place
inside each one of us
the womb of our thoughts
the cradle of our moods
it’s called “I”
and even those with the biggest dreams know
that after climbing Mount Everest
sliding down a rainbow
and dancing with butterflies
we’ll always be brought back to the “I”

the sky is not the limit
the mind which sees the sky is
but you can touch the stars
and kiss the moon
even sitting in your own chair
cause the art of being happy
is the highest form of self-awareness
a masterpiece in the school of life
never climb Mount Everest
if you’re not happy
you won’t panic on the way down
while facing the place
called “I”
