Are you really here?
"Get out of your head,"
suggests Anthony de Melloa,
"and return to yourself."
If much in your head,
you avoid yourself,
--even as you struggle to accept this truth--
is a fine, thrilling place to be,
a place of simultaneous sanctuary and vision.
For just awhile,
retreat from your thoughts
and come back to your soul-centered self.
This is a returning,
a deliciously satisfying homecoming.
"Get out of your head
and return to yourself."
