Where Do Thoughts Come From?

by Annette Wynne

The minute I'm awake in bed
A hundred thoughts pop in my head,
Before I've had the time to dress
A hundred more—
They wait all night for me, I guess.

But where they go
I do not know,
Or where they're from;
I know just this—they always come;
And even grown-up people say
To find this out there is no way.

Some thoughts are very light and small,
And some are brave and strong and tall,
And some are bright and pretty, too;
And some are loving, good, and true.

The strangest thing it is, I find,
I'm like the thoughts inside my mind,
So thoughts, keep coming all day, do—
Especially the good and true!

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

– Philippians 4:8
The Bible, KJV
