Mind's End

Mind's End

A good question is
Asked from the edge 
Of a precipice..
The mind asks and
Expects the answer
From the realm
Of earlier expectation..
Yet..this question
Finds only stillness
Frightening stillness
For the mind..and a
Wish to retreat..
Until..that Jump...

The self-inquiry "who am I?"
does not wake you up.
It is the silence after you say, "who am I?"
and you keep still.
Then the time comes when the stillness wakes you up and you become free.
